From archaeology, conservation and decorative art to maritime and city heritage and natural history, this museum is stuffed with treasures and finds donated by the good people of Plymouth since the end of the nineteenth century. Part of the permanent displays is the nationally important Cottonian Collection, a startling cache of oil paintings, Old Master and English drawings, watercolours and about 7000 fine print collected by the 18th century connoisseur Charles Rogers. The collection also features family portraits, prints and memorabilia concerned with Plymouth-born Sir Joshua Reynolds. There is an interactive Natural History gallery, as well as world cultures, archaeology, local history and Ancient Egypt galleries on the ground floor. The first floor galleries highlight the fine and decorative art collections, while the changing exhibition programme caters for a wide range of interests and features historic and contemporary art, photography, local interest and textiles.
