It is a complex problem to create an environment suitable for both objects and people within museums and galeries housed in historic buildings, which house some of the most important exhibits and require highly controlled conditions. The need to maintain historic buildings intact during restoration often prevents the installation of full air-conditioning, which is required to adequately control the relative humidity, temperature and pollutants. This paper examines how the natural operation of historic buildings can be enhanced to improve environmental control without resorting to full air-conditioning. Also discussed is how to control and predict air movement so as to provide an adequate supply of fresh air for visitors at the same time as a suitable environment for the objects, and what effect the visitors have on the objects and fabric of the galleries.
