Like Clockwork! Guinness Collection at the Morris Museum Mechanical Automata

Like Clockwork! Guinness Collection at the Morris Museum

How does the Morris Museum keep hundreds of mechanical objects running like clockwork for twenty years?

This exhibition takes you behind the scenes at the Museum. Observe how Murtogh D. Guinness Collection Conservator Jere Ryder investigates the inner workings and condition of individual objects of mechanical music and automata.

Treatment can take one of three paths. Routine maintenance preserves pieces in their current condition. Conservation by our recognized specialist repairs damaged parts. Historic works can be restored to their original state after extensive research and consultation with colleagues world-wide.

Explore before and after photographs and select examples from Jere’s current and upcoming projects.

Exhibit runs May 1 to September 22, 2024.
