What's In Store

There are so many exciting stories and so many interesting objects to discover that they simply do not fit in all the galleries. This is our accessible store full of wonderful or interesting objects, many of which have a connection to Coventry. They include coins and medals, costume, paintings and sculptures, pottery, watches and clocks, radios, sewing machines and natural history specimens such as birds, mammals and fish. Pull open a draw or slide back the door to explore more.

For Families

What's in Store is an Aladdin's cave where you can explore lots of weird and wonderful treasures from the museum's diverse collection. 

With stuffed animals and paintings from floor to ceiling, drawers to pull out and cabinets to peer into, you will feel like they have had a true taste of a museum store. What can you find?
