Perth Museum & Art Gallery are looking to save the Perth Mummy for future generations. This special exhibition showcases how museums look after the fragile objects in their care and includes the live conservation of Perth’s mummy.
Visitors will be able to watch as conservators perform the delicate task of treating museum objects inside the gallery’s purpose-built conservation studio. Using examples from across Perth Museum & Art Gallery’s collection of over 430,000 objects, this exhibition will highlight the threats to these objects of cultural and historical significance and the ways in which curators and conservators work to safeguard them for future generations.
There will be human remains on display as part of this exhibition, which may not be suitable for all visitors.
