Artifact Conservation

Do you have an object that needs to be cleaned or repaired?

The best person to ask for advice is a professionally trained artifact conservator. Unfortunately, the Wyoming State Museum does not have an artifact conservator on staff. Information relating to the proper care and preservation of historic objects can be provided by museum collections staff, but questions relating to object cleaning or repair should be addressed by a trained conservator.

For more information about the field of artifact conservation and guidance on how to find a professional artifact conservator, please visit the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) website at

Please be aware that conservators in private practice will charge a fee for conservation work, but may be able to provide you with some free advice.
