Behind the Scenes at the Museum: Conservation Studio Tours

The Conservation Department is pleased to announce that we will be throwing open the studio doors to our visitors for behind-the-scenes tours. This is a chance to meet the conservators, see a few of the projects that we’re working on, and get up close with some objects from the Museum’s collection.
