Objects' Journeys Explored in Sheffield

The Treasure's gallery at Weston Park Museum in Sheffield has undergone a revamp and a new display of objects from the World's Cultures collection is now active.  The display has been the project of young people aged between 14-24 who have explored objects and their links to the city through looking into the stories behind how they came to arrive in Sheffield.

Among the items chosen from the World Culture collection's 2000 objects, are a skull of a crocodile, 19th century Japanese dolls and Egyptian mummies.
