The secret life of a museum, uncovered, revealed and unwrapped.
Our stores are a quiet, hidden world where objects sit, carefully cocooned, catalogued and concealed behind the scenes, waiting for their time to shine. From the spoils of war, plundered pieces and sentimental mementos to regulation kit, equipment and official logs and lists, plus intensely personal possessions, it’s all here.
This special exhibition puts the spotlight on objects from our collection which have rarely been on display.
It’s their time to step out of the shadows as we explore their stories and their journey into our care. We meet the dedicated collectors from the regiment’s past and wonder what, in our digital, throwaway age, might be the prize museum piece of the future.
