GoGreenHorizon's post

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is the largest museum in the Netherlands. The collection contains 1.1 million (art) objects from and relating to the Netherlands from the Middle Ages until the 20th century. The Conservation & Science (C&S) department is housed in the Ateliergebouw, consisting of one science and six conservation disciplines. The activities of the entire department are focused on the understanding and preservation of the rich and diverse collection of the Rijksmuseum. Extensive technical research is used for collection studies and conservation treatments, and we are grateful to have their amazing research team as part of GoGreen! Close collaboration between the conservator, curator and scientist forms the cornerstone of the activities within the department, including the GoGreen research and development in sustainable practices.
