The Mathom-house was a museum-like building in Michel Delving where the Hobbits collected and displayed "mathoms": items for which they had no particular use.[1] It was known to contain a store of weapons, and for a time also held Bilbo Baggins' mithril coat.[2]

Portrayal in adaptations

2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:

The Mathom-house is the place where players can turn in reputation items to gain favor with the Hobbits of the Shire.
