Behind the Scenes Tours of Conservation Studios
First Thursday of the month, 14.00-15.00

Family Archive Days - Caring for your Family Archive
Tue 29 Oct 2013, 12:30-16:00
Many people are now gathering together photographs, documents and other memorabilia to create their own family archive. Individual timed appointments are available throughout the afternoon for a consultation with one of our team of conservators to learn how best to care for your treasured items.
