Conservators consult with conservation scientists, curators and other conservators to better understand the collections they are responsible for and in order to make recommendations for care of museum artefacts, whether it is a ship model, a ceramic, an oil painting or a plant specimen.

Conservators have to understand the materials used in the making of an artefact or specimen, how they respond to the environment and what causes them to deteriorate.
