Curators at Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum will be holding free tours of the art, ceramics and social history stores as part of the current exhibition Unlocked!

The tours will give the general public a chance to talk to the curators in depth and ask questions to further understand what they do behind the scenes and the process behind getting an exhibition ready for display.

Tours will last 1 hour with the curators giving a tour of the individual stores.

This is a rare opportunity not to be missed and runs in conjunction with the temporary exhibition Unlocked! Behind the Scenes at the Art Gallery & Museum which is open until 15 July 2018.

This exhibition shines a light on objects and artworks from Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum’s wide ranging collection.

You can see items rarely ever displayed and pieces which are undergoing conservation work. There is also the opportunity to see the hidden sketch on the back of L.S. Lowry’s The Mission Room.

Tours of the stores will take place on Friday 8 and Tuesday 12 June at 10am, Wednesday 20 June at 2pm, Friday 29 and Tuesday 3 July at 10am and Wednesday 11 July at 2pm.

Places are limited and tours are pre bookable by calling 01926 334418 or by asking at the foyer desk in the Royal Pump Rooms.
