Museum Workshop was on from 25 October 2012 to 28 January 2013 in the Temporary Exhibition Gallery.
Enter the Museum Workshop: The Art, Science and Craft of the Conservator exhibition and immerse yourself in the behind-the-scenes world of the conservation team, the people responsible for the physical care of objects in the National Museum of Australia's collection.
Visit the conservation laboratories
The Museum Workshop exhibition brings to life the National Museum's large technology, objects and paintings, and paper and textiles laboratories.
Explore some of the objects that were on show
Various objects from the National Museum's collection were on show in the Museum Workshop exhibition. The great diversity of objects in the collection means it is rare that any two conservation treatments are identical.
