Welcome to the online catalogue of Colchester and Ipswich Museums collections

This website will allow you to search the collections of Colchester and Ipswich Museums.
We hold over 200,000 records of natural and man-made objects created over the last 65 million years.
Our collections include Natural Science specimens spanning millions of years, the internationally significant collection of Roman-Colchester artefacts and wider Archaeology across the two counties, Ipswich’s World Cultures collection, a broad Social History collection of the two towns including Dress and Textiles, and finally an excellent Art collection centred in Ipswich.

Our online catalogue is a work in progress and as such there may be errors or incomplete records. This catalogue is continuously updated, and we are working to increase the number of records available for searching.
We hope you enjoy exploring our collections.
