The Restoration Workshop lies hidden in the outskirts of the town. This 3,728 m2 warehouse is divided into 55 store-rooms and includes the workshops and photo studios. Our restorers work meticulously behind the scenes, hidden from the visitors, but this is one of the essential activities of our museum.
