Preserving the Past
Take a look behind the scenes at Chesterfield Museum to discover some of the items that make up our collection and discover what steps we take to preserve them - how we store them, how we package them, the environmental conditions we need to maintain and the pests we need to look out for. We'll explain modern ideas about conservation that preserve the past for future generations.
