About us

Hi there, I'm Bethany Palumbo ACR, founder and owner of Palumbo Conservation Services based in Southampton, UK.


I have a BA (2010) and MA (2013) in Conservation Studies from the University of Lincoln and over a decade of experience working the museum field. In 2017, I was professionally accredited by the UK Institute for Conservation (ICON) and am currently a visiting lecturer at West Dean College, teaching conservation management.

In addition to my business, I stay on top of professional developments in my specialist field through research and publication. I am very active in my network, currently serving as a Trustee of the Natural Sciences Collections Association (NatSCA). I am also Elections Committee Chair for the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC). 

If you have any questions about conservation, an object in need or want more details about my experience, please get in touch.
