Our Collections

We welcome enquiries from researchers wishing to access the stored collection for study purposes. As we are a small team, access may be restricted to specific days or take time to arrange.

Donate an object

The majority of our collection has been collected by the Royston & District Local History Society, as well as through generous donations from members of the public. 

We consider all items which are offered to us, however we are unfortunately unable to accept everything. We focus on adding new stories and objects of signifiance, whislt we balance this with collections care and storage considerations.

If you are considering donating an object to the Museum please email us at
