The Northern Ostrobothnia Museum has employed a wood conservator since the 1970s and a textile conservator since the 1980s. A conservator is a specialist, responsible for the preservation and care of cultural heritage.
In addition to conservation work, conservators take part in designing storage and display areas and the monitoring of heat and humidity. They are also responsible for packaging items and planning and supervising their transportation.
Museum conservators can be consulted in questions regarding the care and storage of textiles and items. However, conservation services are not offered outside the museum.
