The Collection DepartmentThe Collection Department supervises objects in the museum´s collection. It receives items, catalogues them and places them in the appropriate storage.
Many people donate objects to the museum on their own initiative every year, and the museum organises collection drives when its resources allow.
In recent years, increased emphasis has been placed on obtaining objects relating to work and industry. The department´s purpose is to preserve tangible evidence of the city´s history. Objects are used for various kinds of research, exhibited and utilised in educational work.
