Unseen Treasures: highlights from our collection

This virtual exhibition shows films of items from the collection that have recently been displayed for the first time.

This exhibition has been supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

There are more than 5,000 objects in the Eyam Museum collection, but only a small number have ever been on display. 

Here we showcase some of our unseen treasures, each one relating to a different part of the history of Eyam.

Some of these items have received special conservation treatment to enable them to be included in the exhibition.
