Conservation Management

Chuncheon National Museum was built with a variety of conservation facilities to enable such techniques as vacuum impregnation, steady stream water bath, forced convection, air abrasion, and fumigation. This equipment prevents damage from biological hazards, such as insects and mold, and can also be used to administer physical and chemical treatments to pieces in our collection. At present, our conservation management technology is being applied to artworks and artifacts made of metal, wood, porcelain, and ceramics. Our conservation laboratory works not only on our own valuable artifacts, and also on those of private collectors in the area, with the goal of preserving and documenting Korean traditional culture.

What is Conservation Science?

Pieces in our collection are often fragile and easily damaged, depending on their physical, chemical, and biological components and surroundings. Conservation science-defined as the process of reinforcing, repairing, and restoring cultural properties-plays a crucial role in a number of fields, particularly archaeology and art history. With today's advanced scientific knowledge and technology, it is now possible to uncover stories about these objects that once remained hidden, including how they were made and where they might have travelled. In addition, conservation science can protect items from damage caused by light, temperature, humidity, air pollution, pests, and mold, while also helping to maintain and manage collections under proper environmental conditions.
