Centre de recherche et de restauration des musees de France (Centre of Research & Restoration of the Museums of France)

The Centre of Research & Restoration of the Museums of France was created by the French Ministry of Culture on December 1998, by merging of two previous structures: the Laboratory of Research of the Museums of France (LRMF) & the Restoration Service of the Museums of France (SRMF). The missions of C2RMF consist in, in cooperation with the curators in charge of the various French Museums collections, the definition & the implementation of the politics of the Direction of the Museums of France in the fields of research, preventive conservation & restoration of the French Museums collections. C2RMF has a R&D activity relative to the methods of examination, characterisation & analysis of the cultural heritage artefacts & their componant materials, sets up & keeps a documentation on these artefacts & materials, on the restoration techniques, & carries out restoration campaigns. C2RMF employs rougly 150 people & is located in three places: the office & an underground laboratory under the Carrousel garden & restoration workshops in the Flore aisle of the Louvre Palace in Paris, & restoration workshops in the "Petites Ecuries" building in front of the Versailles Palace. C2RMF participates in many research projects, bilateral or in the frame of European research programmes.
