Restoration of a Crane

The skills and expertise needed to conserve a museum collection is as varied as the collection itself! Painting this crane with the correct type of paint will help prevent it from corroding. In addition, curators will always try and match the correct shade of paint that the machine would have originally been painted, in order to be historically accurate.
