Sculpture conservation laboratory

The sculpture conservation laboratory of the Acropolis Museum was established in 1982 by the First Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities. Among the first concerns was to group and arrange the fragments of sculptures in the storerooms, organize the conservation archive and file the photographic material. The fragments of the sculptures were then arranged in the Cour Anglaise in the south part of the Museum. 
The following works are carried out in the sculpture conservation laboratory:
research on the identification of the fragments
systematic conservation of the sculptures
construction of bases and supports for the sculptures
up-dating the conservation and photographic archives
preparing sculptures and constructing support bases for temporary exhibitions, in Greece and abroad
The above works are carried out in full respect for the principle of reversibility.
Preparation of the sculptural decoration of the Parthenon (metopes, frieze and pedimental sculptures) and other objects for exhibition in the New Acropolis Museum was initiated in 2001. These works made it necessary to amplify the laboratory, from 2003 on, with personnel from the Organization for the Building of the New Acropolis Museum.
