Welcome to Object Lessons, the 'online educational museum' based on East Sussex County Council's Art and Museum Service collections.

Object Lessons features a huge range of objects and artefacts from civilisations across the world and through thousands of years of history. Here you can find the discoveries, beliefs, art, crafts and everyday lives of people past and present. You can also explore the nature of our planet; what it is made of and what lives, or lived on it.
