Collections Essentials: Life and Death of a Museum Object

Join us for the first in a new series of MDY Collections Essentials sessions.

Collections Essentials is aimed at people who are new to volunteering or working in museums, or those who would like to increase their understanding of the principles, values and ethics which underpin professional museum practice.
