Improving Collections Storage

The purchase of supplies and equipment to store collections housed in the 1846 National Historic Landmark Robbins and Lawrence Armory, an international engineering heritage site. The museum's holdings document the history of precision manufacturing and include machine tools, models, and firearms, which date from 1820 to the mid-20th century, as well as books and records from 19th-century machine tool companies.

American Precision Museum in Windsor, Vermont, will improve storage conditions and our ability to care for collections by (1) reducing excess humidity in the Annex storage area through installation of a dehumidifier; (2) reducing excessive light levels in Armory storage by installing 50 window roller shades; (3) rehousing and reshelving archival collections in both locations, and using a new museum vacuum cleaner purchased as part of the project to improve the level of cleanliness in storage areas. These activities are based on the detailed recommendations of prior conservation consultants.
