In the War Museum there are five conservation laboratories, well-equipped and staffed with appropriate scientific personnel. The services they provide are of high quality, with respect for the history of our national heirlooms and aim at the preservation of our historical heritage in order to be safely passed on to future generations. These are namely:
Laboratory for the Preservation of Old War Heirlooms
All kinds of war relics are preserved from antiquity until the 19th century (damage detection, photographic documentation, disassembly, maintenance, aesthetic restoration, and assembly).
Laboratory for the Preservation of Works of Art and Relics on Paper
Diagnostic, preventative maintenance, and repair of works of art on paper (manuscripts, lithographs, copperplates, maps, photographs, and books).
Painting Conservation Workshop
The workshop carries out maintenance – restoration of paintings on canvas or fabric.
Fabric Maintenance Laboratory
The armory carries out maintenance work on newer armament (late 19th-20th century)
Within the framework of its responsibilities, the scientific staff of the maintenance laboratories takes care of the environmental parameters regulation within the exhibition, storage spaces of the Museum and its Branches, as well as the management of its exhibits-collections.
