 A project to rehouse an archaeology collection that focuses on North America. The 72,000 archaeological objects would be moved into the newly constructed LEED-certified Avenir Collections Center and placed on custom-created storage mounts and in new cabinetry.

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science (DMNS) requests a Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections implementation grant for a three-year project to sustainably preserve its internationally significant Archaeology Collection into the Museum’s state-of-the-art Avenir Collections Center. Grant funds will support collections assistants who will move and rehouse this collection. Cost share will include DMNS-contributed time (from staff, interns, and volunteers), preservation supplies, and indirect, as well as museum storage equipment from a third party. The project will improve accessibility of the Archaeology Collection for scholars, source communities, students, and the general public, and will promote continued humanities research and cultural partnerships. Dissemination of project results and information about the design and construction of the Avenir Collections Center will provide an important resource to other humanities museums looking to sustainably preserve their collections.
