55. Depository for objects and depictions of the city
The museum’s collection is made up of a wide variety of objects which tell the story of the city and its people from prehistoric times to the 21st century, the past and the present, from various standpoints.
The objects come from a range of sources including archaeological interventions, heritage items safeguarded since the 19th century, City Council institutional representation objects, materials recovered from rubble generated by major urban development changes and items removed from public space in compliance with the Historical Memory Act. Work is currently underway to compile materials connected with the city’s industrial past.
