In 2007, the restoration and conservation workshop moved into new rooms at the LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn. Since that time the LandesMuseum disposes over one of the most modern restoration laboratories in Europe, and it is continually being expanded with new equipment for documenting and analyzing (2010 3D-Scanner, 2011 Digital microscope, 2013 portable x-ray fluorescence equipment). Today restoration plays a vital role in archaeological and art historical research. That does not mean that we lose sight of the uppermost goal of museum work: to preserve the objects for subsequent generations. On the contrary, the interplay between scientific questioning and conservatorial and restorational demands is the decisive mainspring for an intensive study of the objects. For example, today's research of the objects is often difficult to envision without tying in restorational know-how. The long years of outstanding competency in the work accomplished by the restoration and conservation workshop at the LandesMuseum have made their mark in both national and international projects and cooperations. And the workshop is in constant demand as an important place for receiving a competent education in restoration work.
