In keeping with our policy of "Opening up the Stores", our reserve collection in the Old Billiard Room next door, kindly rented to us by the Family History Centre, is available for study by appointment. Here we keep the paintings of the Gerald Pitman Collection, the Friends of the Yeatman Hospital Archive, the Friends of Sherborne House Archive and the Foster's School Archive as well as local maps, newspapers, toys and games, domestic and agricultural items and part of our book collection.
Our vast number of photographs has been made more publicly accessible by means of a computerised database. Photographs of our collections and short archive films are continually being added.
Private tours of the Museum and Schools visits are welcomed and can always be arranged.
