Overview

Museum conservators document, restore and preserve artifacts that are on display in museum exhibits. They work in museums, archives, educational institutions, and other places that house important artifacts for the researchers and members of the public. They use chemical and physical tests to determine the age and make up of different artifacts and use problem-solving to determine how to restore and preserve the objects as well as estimate how much it will cost the institution to make those necessary preservations. Conservators also train and teach museum curators and technicians, as well as give tours and provide research assistance to museum visitors.
