Collection Catalogue for review by Volunteers

This page and the linked pages Read more, Photos, Short Story, Long Story are for Museum volunteers to review and comment on the proposed catalogue. When launched for general viewing, the basic catalogue will be available to any website visitor, to allow them to see what is available at the Museum for them to see and hear. As people commit themselves more to the Museum, they will gain access to more content at each stage; just signing up on the website, becoming a patron or a Museum Member. Volunteers will have access to the entire catalogue.

You can scroll down the whole list, or use the dropdowns to filter the list or choose a specific instrument.

Please email webmaster@musicalmuseum.co.uk to report any errors you notice, or to suggest changes or additions.
