This week's donations come from comedian and "Nazi Smasher" Humphrey Ker, therapist and star of Not The Nine O'Clock News Dr Pamela Stephenson Connolly and Nobel Laureate Prof Sir Andre Geim.

Further details

The award winning comedian and "Penny Dreadful" Humphrey Ker donated to the museum Chr├ętien de Troyes, a 12th century French poet who was influential in the creation of the modern novel and also invented chivalry.

Nobel Laureate Prof Sir Andre Geim gives the museum something spooky in the form of "The Ghost Of Curiosity", the spirit of all curious, because curiosity appears to be in short supply - not just by Googling it.

Dr. Pamela Stephenson Connolly, therapist, wife of Billy Connolly, and star of Not the Nine O'Clock News provides the museum with something we all want: the object of desire. It's an interactive exhibit, being different for everyone.
