The Smithsonian founded the National Conference on Cultural Property Protection 40 years ago. What started as a uniquely Smithsonian event now annually unites participants from museums and cultural properties around the nation and the world. Heritage preservation is our core strength with exemplary skills in security, facilities construction and management, risk assessment, and collections stewardship.
