Join us for our final exhibition before we close for redevelopment, for the last chance to see the unique collection of objects and artworks before they are packed away and taken off site to be conserved and cleaned ready for installation in our redeveloped Museum in 2017. Visitors will have the chance to rifle through drawers, peer into packing boxes and explore over a hundred highlights from the Garden Museum collection, many of which have never before been publicly displayed.
