On this personal and exclusive experience, you will explore the hidden treasures of the collection within our state of the art storage facility. Our specialist tour guides will lead you through a sprinkling of the 2.5 million objects and archives we have across our sites.
You will come face to face with our conservation team and learn first-hand about the objects' voyage from store to display.
