Leicestershire County Council's Museums, Libraries & Archives

Online image library and archive

Image library includes a selection of photographs, paintings and objects from Leicestershire County Council collections.

The Leicestershire County Council's museums collections record the natural life of Leicestershire and reflect the lives, histories and interests of the people who have made Leicestershire their home. Most of the objects in the collections have been given to the museum service by local people, institutions, businesses and organisations or have been purchased with the support of local Friends groups or national grants. Highlights of the museum collections are displayed in market town museums and feature in exhibitions at community venues. The collections are used by researchers, students, artists and designers in a variety of different ways.

The County Council Museums Service is responsible for the care and stewardship of over 1 million objects which have been collected since 1849 and are cared for by specialist curators.

The library and archive includes:

  • On-line exhibitions featuring selected images from the collections
  • Copies of many of the images are available for purchase
  • Images from the site can be downloaded for personal and educational purposes
