The Milford Museum announced recently that it is one of 56 institutions in the United States selected to participate in the Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) program.
CAP helps museums improve the care of their collections by providing support for a general conservation assessment of the museum’s collections and buildings. The museum will work with a team of preservation professionals to identify preventive conservation priorities. The final assessment report will help the museum prioritize its collections care efforts in the coming years.
“We are so excited to be selected for this program,” Nicole Rogers, Operations Manager for the Milford Museum said. “This is going to help us develop better systems for protecting our collections and understand how we can better preserve our collections in the future. With our new addition project, this could not have come at a better time as we are planning an overhaul of our storage and collections management area in the new addition.”
The CAP program is administered by the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation through a cooperative agreement with the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
The Milford Museum, established in 1983, works to preserve the history of Milford and the surrounding area. The museum houses several permanent as well as rotating exhibit spaces in their building located at 121 South Walnut Street.
