Collection Management and Conservation Wing

Do you still want to learn more about preserving Jewish History?  You can visit our Collection Management and Conservation Wing on our concourse level.

The Collection Management and Conservation Wing opened to the public in the spring of 2011. It is comprised of the Shelby White and Leon Levy Archival Processing Laboratory, the Werner J and Gisella Levi Cahnman Preservation Laboratory, and has additional space for working with sound and photo archives.

Look through the windows to observe and learn about the behind-the-scenes operations of archivists, technicians, and preservation experts as they make irreplaceable original documents, objects, and recordings available for study and enjoyment.
