The Collections

South Asian

Found on the ground floor of the museum the South Asian collection was the first gallery of its kind in the country.

The collection contains textiles and jewellery from South Asian communities and showcases a range of traditional techniques and styles, many of which are slowly disappearing. The gallery provides a feel of a traditional street through a reconstruction of a typical home and the large bullocks are a hit with adults and children alike!
