Bringing collections to life through storytelling

Summerlee Museum – CultureNL Museums

Created for CultureNL (including the Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life) CultureNL Museums showcases 27,000 unique objects relating to the industrial and social history of the local North Lanarkshire region.

The collection is primarily led by stories of related objects contextualised through inserting them into the article directly from the collection, for example: the story of early law enforcement. Maps and themes, built through standard WordPress pages, were used to allow allow further exploration and browsing through the collection.
