Hampshire Cultural Trust Online Collections

We care for over 2.5 million historic objects, from working steam engines to fragile ancient artefacts. Our collections tell the stories of the people who lived in Hampshire thousands of years ago to the present day. We welcome researchers to use our collections helping us reveal new insights, and support interesting and fascinating exhibitions in our venues for everyone to enjoy.

It is with thanks to generous donors and supporters that we are able to continue to look after our collections and connect people with their stories. “The quality of the collection, both as individual pieces, and as an exciting, thrillingly juxtaposed whole was astonishing. This is an outstanding collection that deserves to be far better known that it is” - Lizzie
