Equipment for Environmental Monitoring and Collections Storage

The purchase of storage furniture and environmental monitoring equipment to improve the care of collections at Iolani Palace. Its holdings include furniture, paintings, decorative objects, household items, and personal furnishings of the Hawaiian royal family, who lived there from the time it was built in 1882 until the overthrow of the monarchy in 1893.

This grant will support the purchase of storage equipment for paintings in the Iolani Palace collections and Elsec Model 764 ultraviolet light monitor which also enables measurement of visible radiation, humidity and temperature. Iolani Palace was the official state residence of the sovereign of the Hawaiian kingdom from 1882 until the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962. Iolani Palace opened to the public as a historic house museum in 1978. In 2006, Iolani Palace completed a Conservation Assessment Program with funding from Heritage Preservation and the Institute of Museums and Library Services. This grant addresses two of objects conservator Beverly Perkins' less expensive recommendations in her written assessment of the collections.
