About 'tags'

'Tags', also known as user keywords, are words added to object records by other users to enhance their discovery by others.

Sometimes museums describe objects in language that is highly specialist and user added keywords are useful in bridging the 'semantic gap' between the language of the museum and that of the user.

The box on the left is a randomised listing of 150 of these keywords that have been added by users of the site. The larger the word or phrase, the more objects it has been applied to.

Click on a word to find the objects that are associated with it.

Please note that this is an experimental way of navigating the collection and that the 'accuracy' of these keywords is not verified by the Museum. We recommend their use primarily as exploration and navigation tools.
