As part of the research, the authors collected valuable data on the conditions in which objects in Slovenian museums and galleries are stored. Considering the limited number of museums and galleries in Slovenia, a complete population study was carried out, with 61 museums and galleries completed the questionnaire. The questionnaire included questions about the organization of museum depots, the long-term storage of museum objects in them, about the climatic conditions in the depots and the use of HVAC systems (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). They also studied the long-term packaging of museum objects in additional packaging and the transportation of these priceless cultural treasures. The obtained data were crucial for the implementation of a project aimed at developing advanced materials for the preservation of cultural heritage.

The research was carried out by researchers from the independent research institute Innorenew Coe.
