Developing Intentional Collections Storage

A planning grant to develop sustainable and efficient storage in a basement storage area for a portion of the museum's 1.2 million objects documenting Western New York's historical, natural, cultural, and technological heritage.

The Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC), located in Rochester, New York, is requesting $50,000 for a one-year period to develop a plan to better preserve the community's at-risk humanities collections through sustainable initiatives. The need for a storage area that provides safe, secure and appropriate environments for the museum's collections is the RMSC's most urgent preservation challenge. A Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections grant will allow us to work with expert consultants to create a plan that will transform the museum's basement collections storage and management spaces into a sustainable, space- and energy-efficient collections storage facility where the most environmentally sensitive humanities collections from problematic off-site storage areas can be relocated.
