Welcome to the Barnsley Arts, Museums and Archives Online Catalogue

Barnsley's collections are an inspiring variety of historical material and works of art. At Experience Barnsley Museum and Discovery Centre, original archives, photographs, sound, film, archaeology and social and industrial history collections tell the story of Barnsley from prehistoric times to the present day. At the Cooper Gallery and Cannon Hall Museum the wealth of art treasures includes paintings, drawings, ceramics, glass, metalwork and furniture.

This catalogue is updated every week with new collections as we work to make all the Service collections available online. At present, this is limited to sections of the archive collection and a selection of fine art from the Cooper Gallery. If you cannot find what you are looking for, you can contact us by email at archives@barnsley.gov.uk.
