Conservation Clinic - Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library

Conservation Clinic


Winterthur's Conservation Department not only works with the Museum and Library collections, but also provides advice to the public.  


About the Clinic

Learn more about the condition, care, and recommended treatment for your antique!  

As part of its mission of public service, at no charge, the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation (WUDPAC) consults on condition, care, and possible treatment of objects. Faculty, students, and Winterthur staff share with collectors, curators, owners, caretakers, and scholars their knowledge about caring for works of art and archival material. 

Owners or caretakers may make a 30-minute appointment to bring paintings, textiles, works of art on paper, books and archival documents, photographic materials, furniture, and decorative, archaeological, and ethnographic objects. 

By appointment only (call 302.888.4786).  Free admission.


Note: Limit no more than three objects per appointment. Monetary appraisals will not be given. 


Available September 2017–April 2018  (Dates are subject to change.)

Held one Thursday per month (1:00 pm–4:00 pm) at Winterthur’s Brown Horticulture Center.
