EHOD Conservation Day TimetableA First World War conservation open day was held at Newry and Mourne Museum on Saturday 13 September, from 10.30 am to 4.00 pm. Members of the public were invited to bring along their First World War items, to receive advice on how to care for them. There were also tours of the museum building; a guided tour of the temporary exhibition on the ‘Local impacts of the First World War”, and a talk on conservation by Sean Madden, who explained the best methods of caring for historic items, how to protect them from the damage that heat, light, dust and insects can cause, as well as discussing how to handle them properly and how to store and display them in a conservation-friendly manner.
