Exhibit conservation is devoted to promoting preservation-responsible exhibitry.
The National Park Service (NPS), together with several partners, has taken on the challenge of developing a more systematic approach to including preservation in the exhibit planning, design, and fabrication process. Conservation has embarked on a major project to create a preservation framework and tool for both NPS personnel and exhibition specialists in general.
Traditionally, museum exhibits have not received the same methodical attention from conservators as have museum storage systems. Publications like the NPS’s Exhibit Conservation Guidelines attempts to bridge the gap between conservation and exhibition by presenting a structure for incorporating conservation into exhibit development and production.
