Swiss National Museum
Museumstrasse 2, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland

The Collection Centre of Swiss National Museum is a state-of-the-art facility hosting the conservation treatment laboratories, the laboratory for conservation research and storage facility. This latter hosts nearly one million objects made of a large variety of materials (textile, metals, wood, glass, ceramics…). The collaboration between scientists and conservators results in the identification of the precise needs and the conception of ad-hoc strategies to access them: preventive conservation and monitoring are issues which are addressed with high priority.
