Over 70 people attended our autumn event held at the Dana Centre at the Science Museum in London.
Titled the ‘Death of the Machine’, the meeting debated some of the issues surrounding the continuing success of museums with collections of machinery and how they might be sustained in the future.
As well as thought-provoking presentations from Oliver Green, Ben Russell, Laura Musgrave and Daniel Martin, there was also a lively debate discussing some of the issues raised in the meeting!
Thanks are due to the Science Museum for their support and to Lee Hutchinson for his help in organising the event.
ABTEM are also supporting another seminar at the National Waterways Museum on the 7th December – details to be posted shortly!
