Conservation Department

The Conservation Department at the Art Museum of Estonia started work in 1975. Over time, the objectives of the conservators’ work has broadened to a great extent: along with practical conservation-restoration, conservators now pay more attention to materials research, documentation and the design of appropriate conservation and exhibition conditions for works of art. The Conservation Department employs conservators of paintings, works of art on paper, frames, polychrome wood, contemporary art and sculptures. The Conservation Department serves all the collections and branches of the Art Museum of Estonia: the Kumu and Kadriorg Art Museums, as well as the Mikkel, Niguliste and Adamson-Eric Museums.
