Special Appeal - Handling collection


Llandudno Museum’s Education officer is appealing for objects for its handling
collection. The handling collection is an important educational resource used
primarily in school group sessions to help bring history to life.

Please note that
material in the handling collection will not become part of the permanent
collections, but will be used for educational and/or display purposes.


If you have any of the objects listed below and would like to donate them to the
handling collection, please contact
