Climate in Museums

Creating good storage and display environments for cultural heritage objects in museums is a complex subject, which receives wide attention.

There will be presentations for the plans for the new Viking age museum at Bygdøy, the new Munch museum and the new National museum building. The day will be rounded off by a presentation from the Getty Conservation Institute covering current thinking about climate issues.​

Presentations will be both in Norwegian and English.
