The conservation laboratory of the new Museum of Capodimonte is in two sections: a restoration laboratory and a scientific laboratory. These two laboratories, which are probably the most modern of their kind in the world, deal with the conservation of paintings, sculpture, ceramics, etc., and with scientific research relating to this. The scientific laboratory has separate rooms for a physico-chemical laboratory, a technical laboratory, and a microscopy laboratory. There is also a well-equipped photographic department.
