Research - museum collections
Our museum collections are an important resource for academic and personal study. You may be researching your home, a family tree or simply want to know more about a particular aspect of Shropshire’s past. Scholars and students use our material to further their work. Our staff may ask you to share your research with us to help develop the services we offer and to help make our collections more accessible to other users.
As an accredited museum we're obliged to ensure the safety of our collections and that any special conditions regarding access and usage set by our depositors are honoured. Therefore, there are set procedures for arranging and undertaking research.
