Objects have been deposited in the Institute since its inception as a place for polar study and research. The museum of the Institute has always had a section of these objects on display but a large percentage has been in storage, much for some time.
However, as the Institute was not originally conceived as a museum there has never been what could be called a museum storage space. Objects have been squirreled away throughout the building, with most of them being stored in a room called B5. Of course, over time B5 has become too small to hold the entire collection and is one of the main reasons why our brand new store was built.
However, the objects will not move themselves, so I rely on other staff members of the Institute and my trusty volunteer Ronald to help me relocate objects from various locations in the museum to their new home.
