The West Berkshire Museum Collections
Have you ever wondered how museums manage their collections? How do they conserve the objects in their care? Why do they sometimes turn donations away? Why aren’t those items on display which you donated years ago?
Janine Fox, the Curator of West Berkshire Museum, will reveal Newbury’s own Secrets of the Museum. She will focus on some highlights in the museum, with emphasis on items relevant to family history.
Free to members of Berkshire Family History Society, but a donation of £3 is requested from non-members. Pre-booking is required. Full joining instructions will be emailed to attendees in advance. Bookings close one day before the meeting.
