Sydney Open: Behind-the-Scenes

When you own half a million things, how do you possibly look after all of them?

As part of Sydney Open 2016, get an insight into the world of conservation at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, with a rare opportunity to learn how Museum staff practice the subtle science and exact art of keeping objects in perfect condition for hundreds of years. Visit our highly restricted laboratories and hear from the people who examine, conserve, preserve and prepare objects for display and storage.

Tours run for 40 minutes. Limited places available.
