Gallery Maintenance

Objects being prepared to go on exhibition get conserved, but they also need care while on exhibition. Each Monday, when the Museum is closed to the public, our Conservation Technicians, together with staff from the Exhibitions Department, and the relevant Curatorial Section, work in the Galleries.

They clean objects on exhibition (even well-sealed cases can admit dust and some of our older cases are not well-sealed), check their condition, and note any problems with lights and labels. Such ongoing care is a major component of our program of preventive conservation.
