What do you collect?

RAMM’s ‘What Do You Collect?’ display case is devoted to local collectors who want to share their passion. With two new displays each year, we show a wide range of collections that explore the breadth of people’s interests and enthusiasms. The display case can be found in the ‘The Finders Keepers?’ gallery, which is devoted to people who have donated their collections to RAMM.

I have a collection I would like to share

If you have a collection you would like to share with us, please get in touch. The objects can’t be too big as the collection will be displayed on 170mm shelves. The interpretation will include a brief description of the collection and how it developed, as well as a picture and a little about the owner.

Get in touch

If you are local and you have an unusual or interesting collection and would consider displaying it at RAMM, then let us know. The easiest way is to complete the online Contact us form: fill in your details, select Getting Involved, and answer the following questions:

  • What do you collect?
  • Which was the first item in your collection?

  • How many objects do you have in your collection? Which is your favourite object and why?
  • What is your dream object for the collection?
  • What would you like to happen to your collection when you die?
  • Please tell us a little about yourself.

We have a passion for collections and look forward to hearing about yours.
