Conservation in Action: Cleaning the replica Sutton Hoo helmet

How would you clean the Sutton Hoo helmet? Join us as we clean one of the replica helmets!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Pop along to the Discovery Room in Tranmer House to watch our Collections & House Officer Jack cleaning our replica Sutton Hoo helmet. This object is used extensively throughout the year and therefore gets dirty and tarnished, so we protect it by cleaning and waxing it twice a year. Discover more about how the replica differs from the original and how the National Trust cares for its collections.
