The V&A 保护 department preserves, conserves, investigates and facilitates the display of the Museum's collections. Combining expert knowledge of materials and techniques with outstanding practical skills – underpinned by scientific analysis and research – we evaluate the condition, provenance 和 authenticity of our collections, helping to safeguard them for future generations.
The department includes specialists in the conservation of textiles & dress, ceramics & glass, stained glass, metals, sculpture, furniture & frames, paper, books and paintings. Our team of conservation scientists uses traditional techniques and modern methods of analysing the collections, promoting knowledge and understanding of museum objects and their environment. We also help the Museum to find new and innovative ways to store and display its collections and to establish the safe transit of objects when on loan or touring. We share this expertise with colleagues around the world through collaborations with other institutions, 和 by offering student placements in the department.
