Recent acquisitions

We are always looking for new objects that will enhance and expand the museum's collections. Our aim is to develop collections of local, national and international importance which reflect the legacies of transatlantic slavery, the African diaspora and slavery in the contemporary world.

Some of the highlights of our recent acquisitions, which have been added to the collection since the museum opened in 2007, are shown below. These include several items which were very generously donated to the museum.

Follow the links below to find out more about each item.
