Packing pharmaceutical bottles safely in acid free tissue and acid free boxes for their storage and journey to Hitchin Town Hall. We’ve all been having refresher training on best practice for object cleaning and packing.

Packing bottles

It’s been quite a hectic two weeks. After taking down our last exhibition, quite a strange moment, and doing a video walkthrough of the museum, work started on setting up our new working space for object processing. The large gallery has become the photography and research area, and the small gallery the object cleaning area. We’ve started with the Pharmacy, as there is no doubt that this will be displayed in its entirety at the Town Hall. Pictures to follow soon!
