Every day we publish new stories about our collections online. Below are two ongoing streams of stories that we recommend for a daily dose of historical distraction.
Close Look Collections
While our physical museums are shut due to the coronavirus outbreak, each day we’ll post a new digitised object from our collections to this website.
We’ll encourage you to zoom in on the image and enjoy some of the small details in the work. Sometimes we’ll tell a story about the item; other times we’ll provide an analysis of elements you might overlook. Occasionally, we may even take a more playful approach.
100 Pioneering Women of Sussex
Sadly, you can’t visit our Anita Corbin: 100 First Women Portraits exhibition in Brighton Museum right now. But you can enjoy this blog about 100 Pioneering Women of Sussex.

With so many staff using the lockdown as an opportunity to tell their stories, you will likely find a new post here every day at present.
