Collections

Social History Collection

There are approximately 16,000 objects in the social history collections.

The museum started to collect everyday objects in the 1930s recognising that society was rapidly changing and old ways of life disappearing.

Initially these were viewed as quirky bygones but the museum now attempts to reflect the domestic environment, working conditions and leisure pursuits of the people of Middlesbrough within its collections.
