Have you ever wondered exactly what goes on behind the scenes at the National Conservation Centre? Do questions along the lines of “just how the blazes do you clean a priceless fragile antique or work of art without damaging it?” keep you awake at night? If so then clear your diary next Wednesday and head over to the open day.

Throughout the day on 16 August eight different departments at the centre will be inviting visitors behind the scenes for guided tours.

Please note that for safety and security reasons places are strictly limited on each tour and must be booked in advance.

If you can’t make it on a tour then you can see information about the work of our conservation departments on the website. There’s also a recently updated gallery of case studies of projects by conservation technologies and sculpture conservation.
