Collections Centre Tour
Tuesday 3 October at 1pm | Museums Worcestershire’s Collections Centre
It is only possible to display a small amount of the collections at any one time in our museums and galleries, so what happens to the other items not on display?
Collections Centre tours allow you to get behind the scenes of the museum collections and see more of the historic collections of Worcestershire County Museum and Worcester City Museums.
The centre is where the museum staff and volunteers undertake research, conservation, prepare items for exhibitions and preserve museum objects so that they can be made accessible for future generations. You can find out more about it on the Collections Centre homepage.
On the tour…
On arrival, you will be met by one of the expert curatorial team who will give you a tour of the Collections Centre.
During your visit, you can view the Archaeology and Textiles collections as well as Decorative Arts and Furniture, World Cultures and Social History items that preserve the lives, skills, and memories of countless Worcestershire people.
Bring along your questions! This is a fantastic opportunity to explore history and museums in a small group with one of Museums Worcestershire’s curators.
Tours last approximately 1 hour and are £8.75 per person.
The Collections Centre is near Hartlebury; location details will be provided upon booking.
