YOUNGSTERS were allowed to get up close to objects on display as they learned all about how they are looked after by experts.

Sudbury Hall Museum of Childhood held its popular Conservation Close Up Day.

While children got the chance to check out the museum's collections, they were also informed on the ways which the artefacts are protected from becoming damaged, and gained an insight into a day in the life of a conservationist.

There was also plenty of fun and games to keep children entertained during their visit.

Young visitors became conservation crime scene investigators for the day in an interactive game as they were tasked with investigating what could have damaged various objects.

The next big event at Sudbury Hall is George's Marvellous Medicine outdoor performance, taking place on August 27, from 2.30pm until 4pm.
