When you own half a million things, you can’t show all of them at once. Some of them go into storage. As part of Obscura Day, we’re excited to offer you an exclusive opportunity to visit our basement, and get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the stranger pieces owned by the Museum. This guided tour with our curators will explore the secrets behind the curious inventions, technologies and fashions that didn’t quite catch on as much as they should have.
This tour is part of Obscura Day 2016. Obscura Day, organised by Atlas Obscura, is an annual global festival celebrating discovery and exploration with unusual, wondrous, and curious real-life expeditions throughout the world.
Suitable for ages 12 and over. Meet at the Museum’s cloaking desk, Level 3. Due to building restrictions, this tour is not wheelchair accessible.
