The Connected display will temporarily close from 4 August 2020.


If you could choose your favourite item in the Herbert, what would it be?

We asked members of the public to choose their favourite object or work of art in the Herbert. Their choices are on display in an exhibition called Connected. It brings together star objects from across the Herbert's collection into one place.

From a piece of a meteorite 4.5 billions years old to a 1960s mini-dress, this exhibition has an amazing variety of objects. You can find out who picked the objects and why they picked them by watching a film in the exhibition.

For Families

Members of the public have chosen their favourite object or work of art from the Herbert's collection. 

Find out why and see their choices on display in Connected, which range from a piece of a meteorite to a bald eagle.
