You shouldn't be in Safari on your iPad, rather using the Treasures app you just downloaded.
There is no Shockwave for the iOS, though many Shockwave apps have versions available in the iTunes Store.
Edit: You may have taken an external link from within Treasures that opens in Safari as a standard web page, not tailored for mobile/iOS. In that case any flash/shockwave content will not be visible.

Hi, the apps are "Treasures HD" and "British Library" and they seem to have somewhat limited functionality. Maybe I'm not using them right or maybe my expectations were higher but I thought they would allow me to look at the manuscripts page by page.

Reviews for both are stating that they are very limited in their content.
Reviews also state that you can access much more content from the museum's website using a MacOS or Windows computer, and it is free.

Thanks, I tried that using Internet Explorer in Windows and yes, there is much more functionality. I tried the same with Safari but, although I had downloaded and installed Shockwave for Mac, the museum site still reported a missing plug-in when I tried the page turning application. Maybe someday they will change to HTML.
