The Discovery Centre is designed to keep the objects we look after in the best conditions possible to preserve them for the future. The Centre is equipped with a conservation studio, in which our conservator cleans, prepares and examines our objects. 

As part of our care of objects we have a large cold room, which allows us to treat objects for pests. Pests such as moth and beetles can attack objects and destroy them and freezing objects is a good way of getting rid of them.  

Hire our freezer

Our freezer can be hired by other museums and galleries to help with their pest and disaster management.
