Conservation Open House
Behind the glass doors of the Boston Athenaeum's Conservation Laboratory, Athenaeum staff work to stabilize, preserve, and restore the Athenaeum's antiquarian and contemporary book treasures. This public open house is a rare chance to peek behind the scenes at the oldest conservation laboratory established inside a library. Watch as conservators demonstrate classic techniques from washing paper and mending damaged documents to gilding binding leather with antique tools.
