Caring for a house museum with an extensive original collection is critical to ensuring that future generations can access the site and gain an understanding of this region’s history.

Join Jenn Elton, Collections Manager, ACT Historic Places, as she delves into the recent conservation work undertaken on textile and furniture items from the collection, including an embroidered bedspread and Mrs Calthorpe's dresses. This talk encompasses a tour of Calthorpes’ House and an opportunity to view the result of this careful and meticulous conservation work.
