We propose to open the Museum of Croydon stores for an intimate guided tour of our stored collections also featuring an overview of collection care. This activity will take approximately 1hr and can cater for a maximum of 8 people.
West Croydon, East Croydon
The stores are allocated in the basement and are accessible via a lift. In case of an emergency participants will have to leave via a set of steps.
During the visit you will be able to see first hand how our objects are stored and learn a little about how our collection care team look after our objects.
Assembled in the format and spirit of a Saturday School, this session, supported by Theatrum Mundi, will take place in the Croydon Quaker's Adult School Hall and support participants to map out spaces of care & resistance across Croydon.
