The University of Nottingham Museum has a collection of archaeological artefacts from Nottinghamshire and the wider East Midlands (Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire). The strength of these collections can be found in their original everyday use which introduces us to everyday life over a very wide period of time. This is open to the public all year round.

Open Tuesday to Saturday 11am - 5pm, Sunday 12noon - 4pm

 

British Museum Knowledge Exchange Programme

The University of Nottingham Museum is delighted to have been a partner in the British Museum’s Knowledge Exchange  Programme. Coordinated by the British Museum’s National Programmes team and supported by the Vivmar Foundation, Knowledge Exchange provides an opportunity for staff members to share knowledge and skills between the British Museum and partner organisations. In turn, both institutions benefit by  gaining new ideas, learnings and experiences that they can utilise. The Museum was very excited to welcome Dr Julia Farley, Curator of British & European Iron Age Collections in the Department of Britain, Europe and Prehistory at the British Museum, who  spent a week (7th – 11th November 2016) at the University Museum. She examined regional collections, suggesting possible exhibitions, collaborations and learning and outreach programmes as a result of her expertise.
