Our collections

Our policy is to collect objects which represent the history of the British co-operative movement, from how it started to the way it is represented today.

The archive in Manchester is responsible for paper records, film and photographs which can be studied.

The museum collects objects which, through interpretation and display help to tell the story of the development of the movement. 

We are particularly interested in objects which have a background, those which reflect working, social and cultural life.

What we can accept
