Date: 12 July 2014 – 4 January 2015
The exhibition will explain the art of metal work and its conservation work behind the scenes. Some of the objects were recently conserved by Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre, with funding support from the Leche Trust and the Association of Independent Museums. Visitors will be given the chance to compare the object’s condition before and after the conservation process through a photo display, as well as seeing metal objects from a different perspective through a microscope. A short film made by Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre, which documents the process of conserving the Museum’s objects will also be on show at the same time.
