Conservation Assessment/Preservation Plan
A conservator was hired from the Midwest Art Conservation Center to conduct a comprehensive survey of the collections at the Hennepin History Museum. The report included an executive summary, observations, digital photo documentation and a prioritized list of recommendations. This information was used to formulate a written long-range conservation plan for the museum.
