What do museums do with new objects? | Behind the Scenes

Ever wondered how we acquire new objects into our collection & what we do once we receive them?

These objects were generously donated by James and Heidi, who got married in Coventry on the very day that wedding restrictions had been first eased since lockdown began.

You can find their objects on Coventry Collections:
