Our Collections Team regularly receive proposals for new acquisitions to our permanent collections. Each proposal is considered carefully. We collect items which complement existing collections; fill gaps; will engage our audiences; enrich learning and tell an interesting story about those people who used, made, collected or owned them. We prioritise items which tell the history of the Isle of Man and its people.
A new acquisition is always exciting and that’s news we like to share. For new acquisitions see our Instagram account @manxnationalheritage
