Archives staff carrying out research
Would you like to find out more about a particular object or painting in our collection?
Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums offers a paid-for research service to members of the public – our expert staff can carry out research in response to individual requests, in order to give detailed answers to enquiries.
What sort of research can I have done?
Our staff will undertake any specific research relating to the collections held by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, which comprise:
- Science and technology
- Military history and social history
- Maritime history
- Natural sciences
How much does it cost to have expert research carried out?
The research service costs £30 per hour including VAT.
We will try to provide an accurate estimate of the amount of time needed to undertake your research, but this may not always be possible. You can set an outside limit, however, by telling us that you do not want more than two hours work, for example.
Payment, at least for initial work, is required in advance, and because of high bank charges, we can only accept payment in pounds sterling or by credit/debit card.
You can now request and pay for your research online - just click here to complete the online research application.
