The best way to access the collection and see conservation in action is through one of the behind-the-scenes tours.

On this personal and exclusive experience, you will explore the hidden treasures of the collection within our state of the art storage facility. The specialist tour guides will lead you through a sprinkling of the 2.5 million objects and archives they have across their sites.

You will come face to face with the conservation team and learn first-hand about the objects' voyage from store to display.
