Object Care

The care taken in preserving the Museum's collection can also be applied to the care of family heirlooms and antiques. The American Institute for Conservation provides on-line, detailed information for care of artifacts at American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works.

The collections staff at the Museum is able to provide basic advice on how to care for family objects, particularly photographs, documents, costumes and textiles.
