Story Objects Appeal


"What has it got in its pocketses?"

The Story Museum is looking for buried treasure or, to be more precise, your buried treasure. We're after some very some specific books, toys and games to appear in the display cases of our Enchanted Library, our new gallery space where visitors can immerse themselves in story moments.

We've already assembled lots of objects but there are still some which are proving to be somewhat elusive. That's where you come in... We're asking members of the public to have a look in their loft, scour the shelves of their book case and double check the boxes in the garage to see if they might be able to help!

We're looking for donations or loans (all loans would be for a minimum of 12 months). Any objects will be cataloged and cared for by our curator and collections team, so you can rest assured that your treasured possessions will be in safe hands. What's more, the object that's been gathering dust all these years will have a new lease of life, sending a Story Museum visitor on an unexpected trip down memory lane, or inspiring them to discover a story for the very first time.
