Beatrice Adeola Bamigbade

Unity Museum, National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM)

Principal Conservator

Country: Nigeria


As Principal Conservator, Beatrice is responsible for the preservation of objects in the museum’s collection, including preventative conservation which is a great interest. Bronze is a large part of the National Commission for Museums and Monuments collections and Beatrice focuses on both textile and bronze conservation, helping to preserve antiquities for posterity.

At the British Museum

During Beatrice’s time on the International Training Programme she spent time in whole group sessions for a detailed overview of all aspects of the Museum’s work, both front of house and behind the scenes.  Beatrice attended a range of subject specialist sessions, tailored sessions, chosen to reflect her professional interests, role profile and current projects and programmes. She spent her partner placement at Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums in Newcastle.

Beeatrice worked with the ITP 2022 participants to develop a 15-object trail based on a story they wanted to share based around the British Museum collection. The theme of the trail was Food and drink and Beatrice’s chosen object was a cooking bowl from Africa.

Beatrice’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the Edith Murphy Foundation.
