Collections Care

Museum collections include a great variety of materials, many of which are vulnerable to damage and deterioration.

When not on display, the collections are housed at our Chilcomb House and F2 collection stores in Winchester where they are looked after by a team of conservators. Their aim is to prevent the deterioration of the collections by making sure that storage and display will not cause any strain or damage to them. All the conservation staff have special training to equip them to deal with the collections effectively and can offer advice to members of the public on how to care for their own. 

Researchers and specialist groups can look at the collections in store at our Chilcomb House or F2 collections stores in Winchester by prior appointment.
