Presenting museum and heritage collections in historic buildings can enhance the visitor experience and understanding of a place, but it is not without its challenges. 

Creating a stable environment can be tricky, buildings cannot necessarily be adapted for collections needs, and increasing visitor demand can mean increased risk.

Collections and conservation staff from a range of organisations including Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Maritime Museum will discuss how they tackle collections care challenges in their own institutions.

Please note: Booking is essential for this event.
