Rearranging our museum storage facility
During the past few months, our conservation team has been working on optimizing the space occupied by our collection of nearly 15,000 objects in the museum’s storage facility by conducting a review, relocation, and reorganization of these items.
Nearly 10,000 objects from the wood, metal, ceramic, glass, and textile collections have been examined, their data updated, and their arrangement reimagined. These efforts were undertaken in a perspective of preventive conservation. The objective was also educational. For instance, in the ceramic section, the evolution of the medium across different periods and manufacturers was key in the new arrangement.
The significant space reclaimed during this reorganization and inventory process also benefits the ongoing development of our collection by allowing for future acquisitions in the field of arts and crafts.
