Through Aug. 27: British museums offer a peek at "Hidden Treasures''
Through Aug. 27, museums throughout England, Scotland and Wales are holding events, tours and talks as part of Hidden Treasures, a national initiative to celebrate collections in United Kingdom museums and archives. More than 70 museums and galleries will offer a unique opportunity for visitors to see artifacts and displays not usually on public view and learn how the treasures are stored, conserved and displayed.
Events are free and aimed at all ages. Hidden Treasures is sponsored by the Collections Trust, a charity that supports museums, libraries and archives. Find more information at http://hiddentreasures.org.uk.
