Why do we use Micro-Climate?

Micro-climates are necessary in the preservation of priceless irreplaceable artifacts in a more practical way than adjusting the climate in an entire gallery, room or building. These micro-climates keep artifacts in their own individual ideal climates in order to minimize their deterioration.

“Years of producing exhibits had shown that only by involving conservation early and systematically throughout the exhibit process can a museum ensure preservation-friendly exhibitions.”

“The exhibition is, in fact, a compromise between the reason that you acquire and save each object and those conditions that will preserve your objects for the longest period of time” -Carolyn Rose
