An implementation project to improve the management of environmental conditions for the protection of the museum's collections, which include nearly 90,000 fine and decorative arts objects made or used in America between 1640 and 1860. A new climate control and integrated monitoring system would be installed in the museum, galleries, and research library, improving the collection environments in more energy-efficient ways.

Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library is committed to lifelong learning in the humanities and to the sustainable preservation of the collections that support this mission. To this end, Winterthur requests a $350,000 NEH SCHC implementation grant as part of an $873,338 project to enhance the preservation of the collections and reduce collection-related energy costs. Installation of a new HVAC control system will effectively manage energy and the preservation environment in Winterthur’s three major collection buildings–the Museum, Galleries, and Research Building. These buildings house one of America’s outstanding collections of decorative arts and research material related to material culture as well as extensive programming, exhibitions, conservation and scientific research facilities, and two graduate programs critical to training cultural heritage professionals.
