Help York Castle Museum search for most memorable COVID-19 objects
Help us decide which key objects should be taken into the permanent collection to mark the COVID-19 pandemic.
York Castle Museum is asking you to help determine which objects and memories it should collect to represent the COVID-19 pandemic in its collections. Through online surveys and polls, five of the most popular objects, voted for by the public, will be acquired by the museum to help document the pandemic to future generations.
The first chance to have a say is by taking part in an online survey, which can be found by clicking here.
Within the survey you will be asked which objects you feel represent the universal experience of COVID-19, and these will be taken to a public poll on social media with the top five objects being acquired into York Castle Museum’s permanent collection. As well as physical objects, the museum is keen also keen to hear your thoughts and reflections and how you managed to stay creative during the difficult year.
York Museums Trust will also be working with local community groups to collect further objects associated with the pandemic.
