Caring For Our Collection

Milk float part way through restoration

As Sheffield Museums Trust it is our responsibility to care for the collections. This includes ensuring that items in storage are not in conditions that will adversely affect them and that items on display are similarly protected or are placed on display for limited periods of time.

It is also within our remit to restore items where this is practical and to the benefit of the object. All changes to the condition of the object are documented. It is often possible to see our technical team at work in the open workshops, viewing positions are available from the Transport Gallery.
