Yesterday was a sad day indeed as our home for the past four-and-a-half years was finally laid to rest. Room 109, or as we called it, the Clean Lab, has been packed, wrapped and shipped out to Glasgow Museums Resource Centre in Nitshill.

The conservation workshops and labs are all being relocated to GMRC as part of the Riverside Museum Project. This means that the majority of the conservation disciplines will be housed in the same building for the first time. The remaining conservation team is based at the Burrell Collection.

But that’s not to say Riverside’s conservation team is leaving Kelvin the Museum of Transport at Kelvin Hall. Work is still progressing on the large objects around the building and will continue in the new Riverside building right up to opening. The dust you get with a new building is a constant battle for us … and one we will win!
