Access to our collections

The displays at the Manor House Museum and the Alfred East Art Gallery contain a wide range of objects and artworks from our collections. We change the display of artworks from our permanent collection a minimum of four times a year.

As with all museums and galleries, most of our collections are held in secure storage, as we do not have the space to display as much as we would like to. However, the Alfred East Art Gallery's collection is available to view by appointment.

Please contact us to make an appointment.
