Correct storage conditions or environments can decrease the risk of damage to the collection. Museum collection storage is both a physical space and an ongoing process. The space should be designed or upgraded to meet standards and requirements for the preservation, protection, and accessibility of the collection. It is continuity what leads to success. This involves evaluating and implementing strategies and techniques to improve the condition and long-term preservation of the collection.
