Give to our Museum Collections
A lot of the collection to be seen at the Museum are in our care due to the generosity of members of the public, who have so kindly donated over the years since the museum first began.
Our current emphasis is on collecting objects, books, photographs, pictures or documents relating to D.H. Lawrence and his family. Recent wonderful additions have been a book owned by Lawrence’s sister, a drawing of Lawrence from the 1920s and some early editions of some of his works.
