Museum Collections

we hold a collection of around 20,000 objects relating to Farnham and its surrounding area

We are currently updating our Collections Development Policy and carrying out essential inventory and documentation projects. Therefore, we are not able to accept new donations at this time. This will be reviewed in February 2023.

The basis of the museum collection is social history material found in, produced in, or closely associated with, Farnham and its surrounding villages. These collections are divided broadly into the areas of Archaeology, Archives, Fine Art, Textiles and Social History.

Our collections are at the core of the Museum’s programme of activities, exhibitions, school sessions within and outside the museum building and the school loan service.

The museum uses its collections to provide opportunities for life-long learning for Farnham people, visitors, researchers and enquirers from all over the world.
