The Lunder Conservation Center at SAAM
At the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Lunder Conservation Center, visitors have the unique opportunity to see conservators at work in five different laboratories and studios. The Center features floor-to-ceiling glass walls that allow the public to view all aspects of conservation work--work that is traditionally done behind the scenes at other museums and conservation centers.
