Covering art, archaeology, natural sciences and social and industrial history, the Herbert holds a range of incredible collections. Explore what we have in store through this fascinating exhibition packed full of objects and curiosities, from a 4.5 billion year old meteorite to a Covid testing kit. Visit old favourites like LS Lowry’s superb painting of Ebbw Vale and discover new items being shown for the first time.

The Herbert aims to represent people and communities from Coventry in our collections. In Collecting Coventry, we want to know your views on what we should collect, how we can represent you and your community better, how we can help with your wellbeing and how technology could improve your visit. Explore the exhibition and then give us your feedback.

Keep an eye out for exciting new content on our website and Smartify app as well as the Herbert’s podcast.
