Collection Care Audit

Collection Care Audit

In March 2020 a collection care audit of the Museum’s exhibition rooms and stores was carried out by Mags Felter, a professional conservator from the York Archaeological Trust and a member of the Institute of Conservation (Icon).

The audit was made possible thanks to an Association of Independent Museums (AIM) Collection Care Audit Grant with Icon and supported by The Pilgrim Trust.

The resulting audit report provided the Museum with a number of recommendations for ways in which it could improve its level of care for objects to ensure the long-term preservation of the collections it holds.

The Museum will use these recommendations to inform its Collection Care and Conservation Policy and Plan, and will apply for further grants to enable it to address specific issues identified by the audit.
