The Museum exhibits and conserves cultural properties, passing them down to future generations. To fulfill these goals, we practice conservation activities under three principles: (1) preventive conservation, in which different environments such as storage spaces and galleries are made suitable for the objects; (2) analyses of the objects' conditions and the environments in which they are kept; and (3) interventive conservation, which ranges from emergency treatments to extensive repairs.

This exhibition features recently restored objects in order to share the Museum’s conservation activities with the public. It aims to deepen understanding of the Museum’s activities and the restoration of cultural properties, as well as the cultural and historical backgrounds of these properties.
