Horniman’s Museum

Short newspaper clipping consisting of two sections. The first section gives a short description of the visit some sixty members of the Alliance Lodge paid on Wednesday evening (unknown year) to the Horniman Museum in Surrey, where they enjoyed a supper at Surrey Mount after having visited the Museum. The second section informs the public that the Horniman Museum will be open all day during the following Bank Holiday, apart from the fact that it is open every Wednesday and Saturday from 2 pm to 9 pm. Every object in the collection is labelled, and every visitor receives a guide catalogue upon arrival.

Collection Information

These objects are only a part of our collections, of which there are more than 350,000 objects. This information comes from our collections database. Some of this is incomplete and there may be errors. This part of the website is also still under construction, so there may be some fields repeated or incorrectly formatted information.

The database sometimes uses language taken from historical documents to help research, which may now appear outdated and even offensive. The database also includes information on objects that are considered secret or sacred by some communities.
