Conservation exhibits

The latest responses to David Harvey's inquiry on conservation
exhibits made me think about The Conservation Centre at the National
Museums and Galleries on Merseyside. The National Museums and
Galleries on Merseyside (NMGM) have recently established a
conservation centre that brings together all the conservators
working for the institute (except the shipbuilders!) under one roof.
Part of the rational behind the establishment of the centre was to
promote conservation to the general public. They have developed
permanent exhibitions and a walk around tour were you can view
conservation work in progress. The centre has won several awards and
was featured in the Museum Journal last year, I can't give details
as our copies have gone to binding.
