Collections Assessment and Store Reorganisation

Collections Assessment and Store Reorganisation

store move

You can be part of a major project to reorganise our museum store!

We are currently assessing our social history and archaeology collections.

This exciting project will enable volunteers to have the rare opportunity to open boxes and evaluate objects in our collection. This involves skills such as object handling, condition reporting and photography.

It will provide an opportunity to understand collections management in museums, helping us to keep our records up to date as we look at everything we have, what condition it is in and consider their significance to Northampton.

It will also enable us to assess where the gaps are in our collection and what we can continue to collect in order to preserve our heritage. From this we will be able to further understand our collections in preparation for the new museum redevelopment.

If you would like to help us we are looking for:

Collections Assessment Officer


Collections Assessor Documentation Officer
