The restoration of cultural assets shall only be carried out by technicians who are specialised and qualified to this end, or oriented by them, in conjunction with the Institution managers. The Quinta das Cruzes Museum has sought partnerships and technical consultancies in the scope of the conservation and restoration of the cultural assets in its keeping, monitoring and cooperating at all stages of the intervention process.
In recent years several restoration campaigns were carried out in staged fashion in the scope of institutional financial support, provided by the PIDDAR E POPRAM III /FEDER Projects.
The Museum has proceeded with a systematic survey of the state of upkeep of its estate and proceeded, in staged fashion, with the restoration of some clusters and/or isolated pieces.
