Making the Museum: 1930s to 1960s

This online exhibition explores the creation of the Grainger Museum from the 1920s through to the 1960s, through four themes: the architecture and design of the Museum, the creation of the Archive, selections from the domestic objects collection and costumes collection, and video from the Museum dating from 1967. The online exhibition reflects a display in the Grainger Museum, installed from 2017-2020, and includes links to student research and creative responses to the Collections and themes.
