The “conserva-tour” provides an opportunity for participants to explore behind-the-scene stories of the garments on display on a tour led by Tan Yan Ni, curator-in-charge of the special exhibition and Geraldine Sim, a textile conservator. In this tour, you will be guided through the exhibits, learn about their historical significance, the material used, the decorative elements, the challenge of conservation and more. You will also be given tips on how to care for heirloom garments and textiles that you can apply at home!
