Packing museum objects

This How To Guide, published by Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service in partnership with the Collections Trust, is related to the Accreditation Standard 6.2 Care and conservation plan, ‘Your museum must have a plan to maintain and, where possible, improve the way you care for and conserve your collections.’

This guide provides an introduction to the packing of museum objects against accidental damage, pollutants and environment whilst in storage, or perhaps in order to move them within the museum building or for transportation.
