Meet Dean Smith, Senior Preparator in the Preparatory Department at Museums Victoria. He’ll talk about the work he and his team undertakes for research and exhibitions (such as taxidermy, skin specimen preparation, painting and sculpture), help you make a mould and cast, and take you to the Preparator’s laboratory and show you around. You’ll also go on a mini-tour of the Dinosaur Walk to hear how the dinosaurs were prepared for exhibition.
