Scarborough Collections is a unique facility housed in the Woodend Creative Workspace. It offers access to Scarborough's Collections which includes a vast array of social and natural history specimens that have been collected by the town over the years and include things like ammonites, beetles, paintings, prehistoric pots, even cuddly toys! These collections are now housed under one roof in a state of the art storage facility. There is a range of exciting activities on offer which focus on specific themes from the collections. In addition we offer quiet spaces where the truly inquisitive can study in peace and quite on a private view by appointment basis.

Scarborough’s collections are in general of regional importance but certain parts of the collection are of national and international importance. Amongst the more important collections are artefacts from the Star Carr excavations, one of the earliest known sites of human habitation.
