Pride in the Collection

The museum is passionate about having a collection which is representative of our community. A collection which every visitor can relate to.

We have set up a new display case in the covered court containing a showcase of items. All items in the showcase were donated to the Herbert by a gay man. 
His generosity has helped us better represent Coventry’s LGBTQIA+ community.

However, we would like to do more.

If you have something that reflects LGBTQIA+ life in Coventry and would be willing to donate it to the museum, we would like to hear from you!

Please contact the curators, Martin and Ali, at:

We may not be able to accept every object offered, but we look forward to hearing what LGBTQIA+ life in Coventry means to you.
