Winchester is unusual in having its own museum, known as Treasury. It houses the Duberly Collection of Chinese art and the College collection of Greek vases. The colourful Chinese collection comprises about two hundred items, mainly porcelain. It was bequeathed to Winchester by Major and Lady Duberly in memory of their son James, a Wykehamist, who was killed during the Second World War.   

There are also Egyptian, Roman and Honduran antiquities which are sometimes on display. The Greek vase collection has been published in the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum: Fascicule 19 Winchester College.
