Stores Tour

Tue, 10 August 2021 11am

Lifting the lid on rarely seen objects from our collection, usually concealed in our special stores.

Book your museum ticket with a special behind the scenes stores tour for a glimpse into the hidden world of our museum.

Visit the stores, where objects sit, concealed and cocooned out of sight from the visitors’ gaze, waiting for their chance to step out of the shadows.

During the tour, which complements our current special exhibition, Curator Lynda Powell explains why some of our precious objects are kept under wraps, reveal the challenges of storage, conservation and display, and lift the lid, for your eyes only, on some rarely seen items from our treasured collection. This part of your visit will take about 40 minutes.

Due to the compact nature of the stores, we’d appreciate it if you would wear a face mask during the Stores Tour element of your museum visit.
