With this objective, it has been undertaken the integral adaptation of the storerooms of the Archaeological Museum of La Gomera. The methodology consists in developing a diagnosis of the database, location and conservation conditions of the collection. Lastly, it has been designed a set of new solutions aimed at its preservation and accurate organisation.. Moreover, this system allows preventive and conservation protocols according to material nature and their preservation condition. The development of a new storage system provides stable conservation conditions and facilitates the handling of the archaeological deposits, which reduces the risk of accidents.
