Finding and Keeping Collections and StoriesTour
July – October 2017
Behind the scenes in the museum
Have you ever wondered how museums acquire, care for, store, display and interpret precious collection objects? Come behind the scenes and witness the beginning of the journey taken by an object through cataloguing and storage – and pick up some tips on how to look after your own collection along the way.
Continue the journey in the exhibition Finders Keepers: Collectors and their Stories to reveal the final stage – display and interpretation.
We loved the Finding and Keeping tour and would highly recommend it. Kate and Ashley gave us a great insight into the entire process from the acquisition of objects to cataloguing and storage as well as the development of exhibitions and construction of displays.
