About this event

25 January 2019 - Behind the Scenes in the Horniman's Conservation Laboratory

From a corpulent walrus to a hummingbird’s egg, the Horniman’s incredible collections are expertly looked after when on display, in storage or in transit. Get an exclusive insight into the care and repair of our objects with Conservators Julia and Charlotte, and discover different methods used to reveal hidden information – with the possibility of trying our endoscope!

Members' and Benefactors' exclusive event. Ticket holders will be asked to wait outside the Butterfly House prior to the tour so that they can be escorted behind the scenes.
