Museums contain very important paintings, specimens, and artefacts that are of historical significance to a particular country, culture, or the world. Museum conservators ensure that these items are in good condition and maintain their quality so that these may be available to the public and for research purposes for many years to come. Museum conservators are knowledgeable of various kinds of artefacts such as pottery, coins, archaeological finds, and artworks. Many of these items are made of easily decomposing material such as paper and wood and the museum conservator must find scientific methods to restore and store these items.
