MS217: Museum Cleaning Basics
Instructor: Gretchen Anderson
Apr 7 - May 16, 2014

Dirty museum exhibits result in poor visitor experience and poor
collections preservation.  Participants learn when to clean--and
when not to clean.  They also learn how to make those decisions.
Topics range from basic housekeeping to specific techniques for
specific objects.  You will learn why cleaning is important and how
to prevent damage when cleaning.  We will look at specific
techniques that minimize damage while getting the work done.  And we
will discuss when to call in a specialist, such as a conservator.
Students will create a housekeeping manual.
