Information about our collections

Portsmouth Museums is responsible not just for our six physical museums, but also the collections related to them. The collections themselves are grouped by category rather than site, as some items may be relevant to more than one of our museums.

Below you’ll find links to all our collections, which detail their background and the items within. There’s also information about our donations procedure.

Check back later this year, when we’ll be launching our Collections Online – a wonderful new resource that will allow you to browse through many of the items we look after – to not just see items at our museums but also those not currently on public display.
