Behind the Scenes Discovery Tour at the Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre

This pioneering project looks forward to welcoming you to its state of the art facility and sharing the many treasures it holds with you for this complimentary visit for members of the Blackheath Society.

This tour allows you to witness an object’s journey from storage to display. After an initial briefing you will start the first part of your tour by exploring the stores and discovering some of the many hidden treasures within. You will then be led by a conservator through the conservation studios experiencing the work involved in preparing an object for display and the research we do.

You will be welcome to ask questions, and take advantage of the experts knowledge. Bring a pencil if you plan to take notes (pens not allowed), and some photography is permitted. There will be a certain amount of standing, so wear comfy shoes and something warm as it can be chilly. Unfortunately there is no cafe, so if you need sustenance please bring a drink and snack! We will meet at Kidbrooke Station ticket office at 10.15 am.

Numbers are limited if you would like to come please inform the Society Office asap.
