Animal bell - the museum's first object

The first artefact to be recorded in 1951

This simple animal bell was the first item to enter the museum’s collection, when the institution was founded in 1951. It was given by a student in the Department of Agriculture, out of which the museum and its activities emerged during the late 1940s and early 1950s.
