Many of the objects on display at Snibston have been donated to Leicestershire’s Museums Service by members of the public. Become part of Leicestershire’s heritage by contributing your items to our collections and Sharing your Story with us.
Recent donations include a painting of the Century Theatre created by architect Tim Foster (of Foster Wilson Architects) who worked with the Century Theatre crew when he was a student.
In October 2009, this oil painting of Levi Lovett (of the National Union of Minerworkers), dated 1924, was donated in memory of George and Reenie Clay and Family.
In December 2009 two historic Steiff bears joined Snibston’s important toy collection. The bears were made around 1910 in the Steiff workshop, Germany, and are the first items from this highly-celebrated manufacturer to be exhibited at Snibston.
Sometimes we ask local people to lend items for specific exhibitions, items are safely returned following the closure of the exhibition.
