You can search, browse, or visualise the museums data collected by the project. Please choose the appropriate tab from the Database drop-down menu.
Browse allows you to explore the museums data in a structured way according to various categories. You can view the information as a list, on a map, or via the details of individual museums.
Search allows you to choose your own search terms and to filter museums using any combination of categories.
Visualise allows you to generate graphs showing numbers of museums, growth and closure patterns, and inter-relationships between pairs of categories.
There is a Help section for each of Browse, Search and Visualise that gives more information. Our online guide gives an introduction to using these facilities. This short video also shows how to use the Browse, Search and Visualise facilities.
All Museums allows you to scroll through the full list of museums and view the data held about each one.
The data about an individual museum can be viewed directly by typing http://museweb.dcs.bbk.ac.uk/Museum/id into a web browser, where id is the museum's unique ID within our KB, e.g. http://museweb.dcs.bbk.ac.uk/Museum/mm.domus.WM014 for the Bilston Craft Gallery museum.
Note: The tabbed content in the Browse, Search and Visualise pages cannot be navigated by pressing the Back button as they are part of the same web page. Please use the tabs near the top of these pages instead.
