Do you have a history mystery hiding in your attic, something that has always been in the family but you don’t know what it does? Bring it – or any items – to Pontefract Museum to show our curator.

If you have an item that tells a story about Pontefract that you want to donate, and we don’t already have one, it could become part of the collection. Bring it along for us to have a look at, but please be aware that we won’t be able to make a definitive decision or take the item on the day.

Please note, we do not give valuations.
