Behind the Scenes Tours of the Hoard

During 2012 Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery will be holding monthly behind the scenes  tours that will enable people to see both the Staffordshire Hoard in the gallery and work going on in the Conservation Studio.

You will first visit the Hoard exhibition under the expert eye of one of our curators who will tell you more about this fascinating find. This is an exclusive visit for the ticket holders.

Following this you will be escorted to the Conservation Studios where the Hoard Conservation team will be on hand to demonstrate how they are conserving the Staffordshire Hoard. You can hear about recent  findings and research and also have privileged views of the Hoard under powerful microscopes. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions.

These fundraising tours are exclusive events. The price for the tours are £20 per person. Pre-booking is essential as all previous Behind the Scenes tours have quickly sold out.

Tours start at 12.30pm and finish at 1.45pm.

March 7th, April 4th, May 2nd, June 6th, July 4th, August 1st and September 5th.
