In Conversation With

In Conversation With


In Conversation With is a new weekly series where we ask friends of the Museum to tell us about their favourite object – and what it means to them. We'll be speaking to members of the Faculty, members of the University and a few surprise guests to tell us (and you!) about the casts which make their hearts beat a little faster.

A new In Conversation With will be added on Monday every week until December 2019.
