Home & Community
Home is many things a repository of memory, a centre for family life and social activity, the focus of personal accumulation of material culture, an intensely personal place of retreat and solace, and the wellspring of personal identity. This collection reflects the broad range of cultural, social and economic activities of the home in both urban and rural settings. It has been developed largely through donation and in partnership with communities. Community engagement will continue to be a prime methodology to develop and interpret the collections.
