Hiring a consultant to assess storage conditions and the purchase of environmental monitoring equipment for a collection of more than 10,000 historic dolls, toys, and miniatures, most from the 19th and 20th centuries, with a particular emphasis on objects from Japan and the American Southwest.

Funding from NEH would be allow the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys (DMMDT) to work with a conservation consultant to assess the current storage conditions of the collection, in order to develop a plan for making improvements in the short and long term. The consultant would also provide staff and volunteers with basic, informal training on techniques and methods of preventative care. In order to gather data in preparation for the assessment, DMMDT would purchase and use environmental monitoring equipment. Consultation will be provided by independent objects conservator Barbara Johnson.
