Learning Programmes:
Some of the museum's objects have been donated by staff and students from their travels across the region, while others are bequests and gifts from institution individuals, including a Hull sea captain who left two models of traditional boats to the collection.

The weapons of Borneo tribesmen, ornate bridal head-dresses and shadow puppets from Indonesia are just some of the items on display at the University of Hull museum.
