Following that, small groups will proceed with tours of the labs, highlighting where conservators curate the paintings, objects, textiles and other historic artifacts being worked here with origins from throughout the state.
Following the tour visitors are welcome to walk the easy trail around the island or join colleagues for lunch at one of several nearby eateries.
