LIGHTINGTHE WAY

Element - - Ecology -

Hous­ing New Zealand’s largest col­lec­tion of nat­u­ral his­tory and war mem­o­ra­bilia, preser­va­tion of ar­ti­facts is cru­cial and pre­sen­ta­tion painstak­ingly con­sid­ered. While the use of LED lights is the most en­ergy-ef­fi­cient choice, they emit a blue spec­trum which can be dam­ag­ing to cloth and pa­per over time. Mu­seum staff are con­duct­ing re­search into how the spec­trum can be re­duced so they can still make use of LEDS.
