Conservation of 19th-Century Objects in the Royal Collection of the Maharajanusorn King Rama IV Museum in Bangkok
This project, which involves the conservation of manuscripts, silks, and other objects from Rama IV’s reign, directly supports the U.S. embassy’s efforts to strengthen ties with Thai institutions on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the first Thai-U.S. contact in 1818.
