Join one of our in-gallery tours to find out more about ongoing projects at the museum working with artists who design contemporary featherwork art in South America as part of eco-activism, as well as learning about the conservation of these fragile objects as part of our Whats in Our Drawers? project.

The tours will be led by members of the museum research team together with members of the conservation team and will focus on telling the art and conservation histories of featherwork objects in the collections.
