New Monitoring System for Museums, Archives, Galleries, and Libraries

Climate monitoring in museums

For many museum visitors, the indoor climate is not noticeable, so long as they feel comfortable. But for the great works of art, the right climate is a matter of long-term survival.

The testo 160 monitoring system will help you manage prevention, to keep the artwork free of mold, discoloration, corrosion, delamination, cracking, or physical distortion. This system easily blends in with the museum surroundings, and delivers necessary data streams and alerts.

Your Challenge


Works of art are very sensitive to fluctuations in the ambient conditions in the rooms in which they are exhibited or stored.

  • Monitor indoor climate, light exposure, and air quality where they have an influence on the condition of artwork
  • Have documentation of indoor climate and light exposure throughout the year
  • Be alerted to sudden climate changes, so corrective actions can be taken
