About

English

The Montagu Museum archive contains a wealth of documents, photographs, maps and Africana relating to the history of Montagu

and the surrounding district. The Montagu Stories webpage is an addition to the archive that extends the availability of this historical material to a new and even larger digital audience.

Montagu Stories seeks to collect stories and pictures on the history of Montagu from any interested party. The success and future of the webpage depends on the involvement of the public; so please contact us with your contributions, ideas and thoughts. The Museum's team of researchers are ready to assist with the collection of information, while the Friends of the Montagu Museum will assist with the final editing and formatting for publication on the website.

Many people worldwide enjoy and appreciate history. In an age where information is increasingly accessed and utilised digitally, that audience has become even bigger. Please support this exciting research project and help us to ensure that Montagu's rich history will not be lost.
