Enter the Museum Workshop: The Art, Science and Craft of the Conservator exhibition and immerse yourself in the behind-the-scenes world of the conservation team, the people responsible for the physical care of objects in the National Museum of Australia's collection.
The Museum Workshop exhibition brings to life the National Museum's large technology, objects and paintings, and paper and textiles laboratories.
Various objects from the National Museum's collection will be on show in the Museum Workshop exhibition. The great diversity of objects in the collection means it is rare that any two conservation treatments are identical.
Talk with conservators about their work and take advantage of this special access to the world of a museum conservator. See conservators preparing photo albums and period costumes for our upcoming exhibition, Glorious Days: Australia 1913, opening in March 2013.
