Athelstan Museum enjoys help provided by Wiltshire Council through their Conservation and Museums Advisory Service (CMAS).
This help takes the form of advice, both over the phone and through periodic visits to the museum. We are also given an agreed amount of conservation work and there is more available if we pay for it.
MODES is a specialised database for museums. It enables items in the collection to be catalogued and accessed under a number of headings, along with accompanying images. The collection of Athelstan museum, over 4000 items is catalogued using MODES. This is common practice in the museums of Wiltshire.
