Preservation is one of three units under the Operations Department that attend to the overall operation of Odense City Museums.

Preservation is responsible for the following:

  Museums, and for preservation efforts for Danmarks Mediemuseum (Danish
  Media Museum) and Fotomuseet (Museum of Photographic Art), Odense

  methods. Currently, efforts are being focused on ink-corroded papers of Hans
  Christian Andersen and on Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen's objects and works of art

- proper preservation and storing af collections in exhibitions and at storage
  facilities through continuous climate monitoring (light, temperature and
  humidity factors).

  lending projects.

In addition, the Preservation Department participates in setting up and taking down exhibitions and in a number of registration projects for Odense City
