Browse Southwark Collections

The Browse feature of eMuseum allows you to look in detail at objects and records held on the Southwark Collections database. A complete catalogue of the collections is not yet available but the website is being updated regularly as we put more of the Southwark collections online.



  • From any point in eMuseum, you can initiate a simple search by entering a word or phrase in the box at the top of the left menu navigation bar, and then by clicking on the "go" button. For example, you can enter a person's name, a title of a work of art, a date, or any other search term, and eMuseum will find all instances of it and return the results to you.


  • You may also use the Simple Search found on this page.


  • For further search options, click on the "Advanced Search for Objects" and the "Advanced Search for People" buttons below.
