Avoncroft Museum cares for a collection of several thousand objects that reflect the life and work that went on within these structures. The majority of objects belongs to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and range from small domestic items to wagons and agricultural equipment.
The Museum also owns a varied collection of architectural fragments, building materials, slide collections, plans and photographs to aid the understanding of building types and technologies in the region. The collection draws on examples from our own buildings and many other buildings across the Midlands which could not be rescued in their entirety.
In 1994 the Museum acquired the National Telephone Kiosk Collection. It contains 32 telephone booths, a stationary exchange and two mobile exchanges from the 20th and early 21st century.The collection is cared for by a dedicated team of specialist volunteers.
