Make your own lockdown curiosity collection
People have always enjoyed collecting things. At Whitby Museum we have a cabinet of curiosities which was owned by Dr Ripley. He used the cabinet to keep his collection of objects in. He collected things like fossils, pieces of jet and other small objects.
Why don’t you make your own collection of curiosities? You don’t need to have a cabinet, you could use an old shoe box. Decorate it and use it to collect things that will remind you of this strange time in years to come. You could include a picture of a rainbow; something that you have made; a daisy that you have picked on your walk and pressed or a diary of what you have been doing.
Send us a picture of your box and the things you have collected firstname.lastname@example.org.
