Shelving for Collection Storage

Rehousing approximately 400 to 600 objects of the museum's collection of artifacts, documenting the history of Appalachia and the community of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Collection items include quilts, toys, furniture, dolls, and coal mining artifacts. The purchase of a light meter and environmental monitoring equipment would also address the storage needs of these collections.

The Children's Museum of Oak Ridge proposes to partially furnish its storage room with permanent shelves and to rehouse a portion of its permanent collection using archival materials.
