Join Catherine Wilkinson of Opus Instruments and the British Museum’s scientists and conservators, as they come out from behind the scenes for their annual event that offers you the chance to take a closer look at science and conservation in the Museum.

This year’s event marks 100 years of the Research Laboratory at the Bloomsbury site. So come and celebrate with us and discover how science unlocks the secrets behind the Museum’s collections.

Learn about the different techniques that are used to monitor and preserve these collections, handle different kinds of raw materials and see the latest behind-the-scenes technology in action.
