Meet our Conservation and Collections Care Team and discover the fascinating behind-the-scenes work that means our collections survive for future generations.
Collections face many challenges, from damaging environments to unwanted pests. How we protect and store our many collections has a big impact on how they survive for future generations.
Come and learn about how historic artefacts degrade, and find out what we do to prevent this. Explore the tools of the trade and how our conservators use them. Discover ways in which our team problem-solve for particularly tricky conservation problems.
