We have a downloadable document which provides researchers and potential researchers with information and guidance about Southend Museum’s policies regarding arrangements for visits, support and facilities available to researchers wishing to use collections, handling objects, sampling and testing and loans.
- Initial Contact
As we are a small team we would prefer that initial contact is made via email at:
Kevin Marsh - Assistant Curator of Art
There is currently no Archaeology Curator in post and therefore we are unable to accept enquiries about our archaeology collections at present.
Social History & Costume collections:
Ciara Phipps - Assistant Curator of Social History
It is essential that researchers make appointments to view the collections, to enable staff to prepare for your visit.
To make an appointment please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Photographs of one of the museum's paintings/artefacts
We do not have photographs of all the collections but are working on it.
We may charge for certain uses of images, for instance if they are to be used in a book, but we are happy to print images out for you if they are for personal use only.
