The Magnacca Research Center at Daly House Museum holds more than six hundred different fonds or collections that contain over 13,000 items. We actively collect a variety of original documentary materials containing historical value. Many have finding aids to help researchers gain access to the valuable information the collections contain such as minutes, correspondence, programs, catalogues, photographs, scrapbooks, and correspondence created by individuals, clubs, associations, businesses and educational institutions located in the City of Brandon and southwestern Manitoba.
