Conservation in Action

LEVEL 2, QUEENSLAND MUSEUM

Summary

Come and see how museums care for their collections – live!

Conservation is a field of applied science based on chemistry and materials science. Conservators use their scientific knowledge to predict, prevent and slow the natural deterioration of museum objects and specimens. They use a wide range of tools and techniques to stabilise and preserve items, allowing safe access, research, display and storage.

Every object and specimen is different and each item holds unique information about its life; whether that be the people who made and used it, their history, culture, technology and beliefs, or the environment and ecosystem that an animal has lived in. Conservation aims to preserve all this information for future generations to investigate, appreciate and enjoy.
