Explore some Collection highlights

The Saltaire Collection may be on the small side, but we have items from across a wide range of subjects and periods.

You can get some idea of this range by viewing the online exhibitions below. Each exhibition tells a story involving some of the fascinating items from the Collection.

World Connections

Saltaire has the status of a World Heritage Site because of its international and national significance.

To mark World Heritage Day 2019, we created an exhibition to demonstrate some of Saltaire’s global connections.
