How it works

We currently hold ongoing contracts with the US Army, Navy, CIA, US Senate, National Parks Service, the Smithsonian, Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, and numerous other clients for military artifact conservation. Our conservators and technicians have diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise allowing us to work on a broad range of materials. Previous government projects have included military artifact conservation, museum collection conservation, and treating military artifacts for exhibition. All treatments and other related endeavors are in adherence to the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Practice.
