Programme of Events
The Science Behind the Scenes at the Museum
National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts and History, Collins Barracks
17th & 18th November 2012
Before any object goes on public display at the Museum, it must be assessed by a Museum conservator. This complex process ensures that every object is stable and protected. From carefully treating, cleaning, and recording an object, to helping to determine how old an object is, a conservator’s work is never simple!
This weekend of talks, film screenings and events celebrates the conservator’s work. We’ve invited our conservators to come out from behind the scenes and we invite you to come and meet them to hear some of their fascinating stories.
All welcome, admission free. See the full programme
