The Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum Restoration Department is tasked with preserving many of the collection’s artifacts. Activities range from simple routine cleaning of pieces to undertaking major restoration projects. Although none of the museum’s artifacts are ever again expected to function as originally intended, it is our goal to reconfigure these precious treasures to as close to original condition as possible for accurate representation.
Always on the lookout for new talent, the only prerequisite for a volunteer restoration member is that he or she be willing to contribute some time to the overall effort. Whereas previous experience or specialized training are qualities in constant demand, there are no special skills required, anyone with an interest in helping to conserve or restore these artifacts is welcome. Scheduled sessions of instruction in the form of initial and recurring training seminars are available to all volunteer restoration members.
If you have a desire to see these wonderful treasures preserved for future generations, come out and contribute some time as a volunteer member.
