Preservation Week Road Show

April 22, 2017

10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center

Learn the value of historic objects in your family collections and how to best care for and preserve them for future generations. This free opportunity to consult with professional  appraisers , conservators  and digital photographers comes once a year.

New this year, guests have an opportunity to work with IHS Digitization staff to receive free digital scans of their items. "Bringing appraisers and conservators together is a unique addition to the popular road show format, and a great opportunity for our guests to discover more about their valued family heirlooms," says IHS President and CEO John Herbst. "This year guests may choose to have certain types of objects digitized for free as part of the event." Guests can register for specific 15-minute time slots with the consultant of their choosing. Your appointment is free and includes parking and same-day admission to the Indiana Experience.

As with other road show events,  there are size limitations and other restrictions for type of object brought to the event,  details can be found online.
