storerooms

   In museums, these are the rooms and vaults in which some objects are placed for study, protection, and future exhibition. No museum has all of the objects in its permanent collection on display at any time. Just as the public generally doesn't get to see backstage in a theater, it rarely gets a look at the storerooms. But museum officials often admit art students and art professionals who make appointments with them to visit their storerooms. Also see art conservator, collection, Collyers' Mansion, curator, director, flat file, gallery, hygrothermograph, and stack tray.
