Welcome to our online database. It contains a selection of objects from the collections held by Dumfries and Galloway Council’s museums and galleries. You can search for keywords in the catalogue using the simple search or build up more complex enquiries by using the advanced search.

Although many objects in our collections are on exhibition, many are in store and some are out on loan. Please check before you make a special journey. Appointments can be made to view an object which is in our stores.

Please contact us to find out more about an object or to tell us what you know about it.

This database is constantly being updated as we make more of our collections available online so come back soon to see new objects.
