Heritage Open Day 2012

On Saturday 8th September 2012 Wolverhampton City Archives held an open day as part of the Heritage Open Days event across the country.

The building was open for pre-booked tours throughout the day and also for visitors to have a look around. The tours started in the Oak Room, off the reception area then went through to the Rococo Room. From here the tours went behind the scenes to the Conservation Studio and then into the Repository itself. After finding out about the shelving and storage conditions the tour went on to the public Searchroom, which includes the microfilm rooms and the Map Room. At the end of the tour visitors were able to pop upstairs to have refreshments provided by the Friends of Wolverhampton Archives.
