Looking after our collections

National Museums Liverpool holds more than 4 million objects across the collections of all our museums and galleries .

The care, conservation and technical research of objects in National Museums Liverpool's collections is undertaken by the collections management division. We combine our knowledge of materials and history of technology with state of the art facilities and scientific techniques to care for, research and interpret our collections. Follow the links below to find out more about what we do.

If you have a special object at home that you'd like to know how to look after then you can ask our advice .  You can also request an image from our Photography department .
