The collections of Wakefield Museums, Galleries and Castles

Since the 1920s over 120,000 historic objects and works of art have been acquired on behalf of those who live, work in or vists the Wakefield district.

At any one time we are only able to display a small percentage of the objects at our seven sites across the Wakefield district.

The online catalogues below are a way for you to see those objects that may not be on display.

We hope you enjoy searching the collections.
