Please note, Shropshire Museums’ Collection Centre is currently open for pre-arranged research visits only during restricted hours.

Shropshire Museums Collections Centre is where the collections are stored and cared for.

Customers can study objects by appointment in our Research Room or explore the free Exhibitions Gallery on the lower ground floor – open during Library opening times.  Please view our Research factsheet for more information.

Fancy having a look behind the scenes? Learn more with our Store Tours factsheet then contact us to book. If you are looking to get really hands-on with Shropshire’s history, join our team of friendly volunteers who help catalogue and digitise the collection to make them more accessible to the public.

Why not have a look at our new videos created as part of the DarwIN Shrewsbury Festival for 2021 which explore some of the objects at the centre as well as taking a look at collections and collecting in general?
