Visitors in The MERL galleries

Led by Curator of MERL Collections, Dr Ollie Douglas, and featuring other colleagues and specialists, each of these tours will take visitors on a short conversational trip through The MERL, exploring different aspects of CARE in relation to our collections. Each tour will culminate in a pop-up display or an opportunity to peek behind the scenes. Specific themes for each week will be confirmed in due course.

Each tour will comprise: 

  • A tour of The MERL galleries, lasting around 20-30 minutes 
  • A small pop-up display (or chance to peek behind the scenes), lasting 15 minutes plus an opportunity to ask questions
