Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is the largest of the 9 sites across the Birmingham Museums Trust. Because of this, the site acts as a base or ‘hub’ for the teams. Pictured is the conservation room at BMAG. The conservation team are not only responsible for the BMAG site but other sites across the trust, therefore they are required to work offsite too. The conservation team care for the museums extensive collection. They also control pest management who pose risk to the collections, as well as restore objects, care for gallery displays, work with humidifiers and monitoring. The team are also able to work on a consultancy basis and can be hired out- offering a sustainable service for the trust. Gemma.
