Welcome to the Barnsley Arts, Museums and Archives Online Catalogue

The collections information in the online catalogue covers the archaeology, archives, art and museum collections held by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council. At present, only a small percentage of our collections have been added, but further information and catalogues are added on a regular basis. We aim to prioritise adding basic details about all our collections, with fuller descriptions about individual items being added later.


This online catalogue was first made available in 2016 via the Heritage Lottery Funded Experience Barnsley project, which saw the creation of the new Experience Barnsley Museum and Archives Discovery Centre. Having opened to the public in the Summer of 2013, it is situated in Barnsley Town Hall. All the original paper catalogues for the archive collections can be viewed in the Archives Discovery Centre.


Please note that this catalogue does not include details of our local studies collections. They can be found on the main Barnsley Libraries website, available at http://capitadiscovery.co.uk/barnsleymbc/.


If you cannot find what you are looking forward, please email us at archives@barnsley.gov.uk and we will be happy to assist.
