Visitors to the Manx Museum will be able to go behind the scenes for the first time next month, to see how staff restore and preserve artefacts.
Conservators Christopher Weeks and Mike Ward look after a range of objects, including motorcycling memorabilia and Manx newspapers dating back to 1793.
Museum-goers will be able to meet them, and see them at work.
The Manx Museum, in Douglas, is hosting two events - one on 7 May and another on 28 July.
"The Conservation in Action events will be a rare chance to catch a glimpse of the material life of the collections, and to find out what it's like to work on the widest variety of art and objects imaginable," Mr Weeks said.
