If you find something of interest in the online catalogues, we encourage you to visit the relevant archive office where the original records are held and a full range of research facilities are available or contact the relevant museum or gallery where the objects are held where staff will be able to tell you if the object is on open display and if not how you can arrange a visit to see it in the museum stores. Each archive or museum service is open to the public most days of the week.  Contact details below:
