    CONSERVATOR'S GUIDED TOUR
    “Preserving the old: Anti-ageing in the museum”
    With Kristina Werner (conservator)
    CONSERVATOR'S GUIDED TOUR



    “Preserving the old: Anti-ageing in the museum”


    How is a 100-year-old skull restored? How do you transport a four-metre-long Baining mask into the exhibition? And how do you preserve the bright hues of colourful feathers?


    Kristina Werner answers these and other questions in a fascinating insight into the work of conservators and methods to slow the process of things ageing.


    Werner holds an M.A. in the restoration and conservation of art and cultural artefacts from the University of Cologne, and has specialised in objects made of wood and modern materials.






    7€ / 3,50€. Costs of tour included in admission fee.
