Seven laboratories are equipped to examine, analyze, and document materials and perform treatments that stabilize and extend the life of an object. Information accumulated from an examination often contributes to the interpretation of the object. Current staff specializations include furniture, decorative arts, paper, textiles, metals, and ethnographic and archeological objects. Conservators assist with HFC historic furnishings projects, and they are a vital component of the exhibit development program. They stabilize objects for display and make recommendations about the exhibit environment. The staff is available to advise parks about any aspect of object preservation and care. They travel to survey collections, develop preventive care strategies, and provide training on the preservation of collections. They examine and treat objects from park collections and advise parks on obtaining conservation assistance.
