I want an object identifying

If you'd like us to identify an object, you'll need to make an appointment to visit one of our museums. The exception to this is archaeological items - please bring these in to Jewry Wall Museum.

This more personal approach gives you the opportunity to discuss your object in detail with the relevant curator.
