CAP provides a general conservation assessment of the museum’s collections and historic buildings. Professional conservators will spend two days surveying the site and three days preparing comprehensive reports that will identify conservation priorities. The on-site consultation will enable BNHV to evaluate its current collections care policies, procedures, and environmental conditions. The assessment reports will help the museum make appropriate improvements for the immediate, mid-range, and long-range care of their collections and historic structures.
