Collections

As you’d expect, WAVE has a vast number of items both on display, and in its archives, from items relating to the history of the area and fossils, to Old Master paintings and contemporary sculptures.

Archive collections focus on local places, people and industry, whilst our museum collections also contain material from further afield.

You can find out more about the collections by:

  • using the links in the left hand menu
  • carrying out a simple search using the search box at the top of the page – just put one or more words, key phrases or artist names into the search box then click on the magnifying glass symbol to run your search
