A modest museum with an eclectic collection, a small staff and fluctuating budget, housed in a historic building never intended to serve as a museum — what could have spelled a conservation nightmare was, instead, turned into a model of teamwork and resourcefulness that made ‘preventive conservation’ an integral part of the daily life of the museum. Eric Blanchegorge has been the French National Heritage Department’s curator in charge of the Antoine Vivenel and Historical Figurine Museums of the City of Compiègne since 1993. In that capacity, he has undertaken a comprehensive reorganization of Compiègne's museums, and has concerned himself more particularly with problems of conservation and restoration. He is also President of the Picardy section of France's Association des Conservateurs de Collections Publiques.
