Faculty and students use twenty-six well-equipped conservation studios, laboratories, examination rooms and workshops in the Louis du Pont Crowninshield Research Building at Winterthur. This building houses one of the country’s largest and best-equipped museum analytical laboratories and conservation studios. Winterthur is recognized as having a comprehensive collection of early American art - domestic, architecture, furniture, textiles, silver, pewter, ceramics, glass, paintings, and prints. The University of Delaware houses art studios for reconstructing historic techniques, science laboratories, a conservation laboratory and administrative offices.
Tours of the conservation laboratories at Winterthur are available to potential applicants throughout the academic year. Pre-program tours are generally held once a month; dates for the fall 2015 semester are currently being scheduled.
