Take a behind-the-scenes tour and see our world-renowned conservators in action.

See the work of conservation and gain an insight into the techniques used to care for our collections on a ‘behind the scenes' tour of the Conservation studios.

Tours last for approximately 60 minutes and leave from the Information Desk.

Please note that coats and bags (including handbags) cannot be taken into the studios and must be placed in either the cloakroom or lockers on the Lower Ground Floor ahead of the tour start time.

Food, drink, pens and markers are not allowed in the studios.

These tours are not suitable for children under 12 due to the nature of the tools and equipment used in the studios.

Please note that there is a considerable amount of walking and standing on the tour. The conservation studios are working spaces, and colleagues may be moving around, talking, or doing other activities that generate noise.
