The Collections Conservation Centre
Under construction next to the Canada Science and Technology Museum, the Collections Conservation Centre will protect priceless Canadian heritage artifacts for the benefit of Canadians for generations to come.
This purpose-built facility will relieve the overcapacity storage situation Ingenium has faced for many years and allow increased access to the collection. The Centre will house hundreds of thousands of nationally significant artifacts emblematic of Canadian ingenuity, including vintage cars, locomotives, propellers, and ship models; cameras, televisions, and telephones; instruments, tools, and equipment from all fields of science and technology — which require specialized environments to ensure their long-term preservation. A new research institute and digital media lab will complement the Centre’s library and archives, conservation labs, and workshops.
