Meet the conservator Anne MacKay and learn more about her expertise and what she does.
The Conservation Department is at the heart of the McCord’s mandate to preserve, study and present its objects.
Conservation research enables us to better understand the place of objects in our history and their pertinence to us today. Every object on display at the Museum has been studied, documented and, in most cases, treated by the Conservation Department. As well, the McCord is a leader in collections care, overseeing the maintenance of the museum environment in its galleries and vaults and ensuring the protection of the Museum’s objects during exhibition and travel.
