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’re currently working on weaponry and our mono-cultural collections. The mono-cultural collections focus on a particular place or group of people.
This basket was collected by Albert Reginald Radcliffe-Brown, a Social Anthropologist who carried out fieldwork in the Andaman Islands of Southeast Asia. The collection was donated to the museum in 1910.
