Displays

Our wonderful collection of local artefacts, kindly donated by local residents past and present, tell the stories of the various trades and crafts that were, and in some cases still are, practised in the Eden Valley, along with stories of local communities and some of the individuals who were born or raised here.

 

Every object has a story to tell. If you would like to see an object that is not currently on display in the museum, you are welcome to make an appointment to view it.
