Other Collections

Costume CollectionThe Museum and Art gallery is home to several smaller collections including:

  • a non-local coin collection
  • ethnographic material
  • botanical specimens
  • agricultural objects
  • costume
  • maps and plans
  • medals and tokens

These collections were some of the earliest developed at the museum and were often gifted to the museum by local collectors. The Museum and Art gallery no longer adds to some of the collections listed above (please see our collecting policy for complete details) and instead concentrates on objects with a direct Swindon connection.

The majority of objects from our smaller collections are cared for in store and only displayed in temporary exhibitions. The collections may also be consulted for research purposes.
