The Yale Center for British Art houses two modern facilities dedicated to the conservation, preservation, and restoration of works of art in its collection. In addition to supporting its own conservation needs, the Center cares for works of art on paper and photographs from the permanent collection of the Yale University Art Gallery. 

Using the most advanced equipment available, the Conservation staff members provide complete technical examinations, and implement modern treatment techniques, ranging from gentle surface cleanings to complex structural repairs. As part of a comprehensive preservation program, the staff assesses objects for exhibition and loan, devises storage and display solutions, and aids in monitoring and improving the museum’s environmental conditions. Both facilities are dedicated to educating staff, fellows, Yale students, and the public about conservation practices through lectures, demonstrations, workshops, and research projects.
