Penn Museum’s Conservation Lab is tasked with the long term preservation and conservation of the Museum’s artifact collections.
Working with other Museum staff, our duties include:
Since the summer of 2010, the Conservation Department has been housed in temporary spaces, awaiting completion of the West Wing renovation, which will see us in a larger, custom-designed conservation suite. Although our temporary spaces are smaller and not designed as labs, we are maintaining and growing our programs.
Additionally, we have a number of work study students and pre-program interns helping out.
