Australia's movable heritage is dispersed amongst communities throughout our country. As part of the National Conservation Strategy, and as a partner organisation of the National Standards Taskforce, the WA Museum provides help to these communities and institutions.

This online resource offers information and advice on all aspects of the planning, operation and management of museums as community assets.

Collections Care Manual

As we transform the digital offerings of the Museum, we are proud to announce an additional website resource, the Collections Care Manual.

This website hosts 12 video tutorials on a range of museum conservation techniques, as well as a fully digitised copy of the bestselling Conservation and Care of Collections book.
