The start of the New Year is when the preventative conservation team spring into action to clean the first floor galleries collection at The Bowes Museum. There are a vast number of treasures on open display in these rooms and it's vital to protect them from damage and deterioration - especially dust. Join us for a short talk about how this detailed work is carried out, find out how different objects are cared for and see the specialist equipment used by our team.
