A Window into The Wilson
Take a look behind-the-scenes...
Discover more about The Wilson and its collections in A Window into The Wilson. Take a glimpse into our visible store and explore unexpected objects and stories that would be otherwise hidden from view.
This exciting exhibition provides a behind-the-scenes look at some of the processes involved in looking after our collections. Join our collections team of staff and volunteers on Wednesdays and Thursday 11am – 3pm for a chance to step behind the scenes!
