In the Horniman

We work at the Horniman Museum and Gardens' stores and come across all manner of interesting, unusual and fascinating finds.
Here we share a few we like with you, but there are lots more listed on our website.


At the moment, we're mainly working on a collections review project: Collections People Stories, reviewing our Anthropology collections. You can learn more about all the collections at the Horniman on our website.

NB: we're not responsible for others reblogging or writing about our objects, but we hope you like these objects as much as we do.

Hear more about our projects on twitter @HornimanReviews.

We really like these two matchboxes from Norway. They are both made of bone and have reindeer carved into the surface.
