Our Conservation department is responsible for the preservation and conservation of all the works of art within the Museum, ensuring they are safeguarded for present and future generations, whilst reflecting the Collection’s policy of minimum intervention.

Our in-house specialists treat furniture and woodwork, as well as metalwork such as arms and armour. We also work closely with external specialists for the conservation of our paintings, ceramics, glass, leather and textiles.
