Fantastic conservation work!

Before I came to Manchester I’d never worked at a museum that had a conservation department. We always did our best with what we’d got, or sent objects to conservators.

Manchester Museum is very fortunate to have a wonderful conservation department and particularly Jenny does wonders with the natural history objects.

Yesterday, Jenny and her placement student returned an incredibly fragile fossil of an amphibian which I had asked them to repack. I wanted to transfer it from a box to a drawer so that it was more easily accessible. They have done a great job and ensured the object’s survival for many years to come!

Thanks Jenny!
