Abstract: The conservation of musical instruments in museum collections presents challenges to ideal conservation values that lie at the heart of both theory and practice. The International Committee of Musical Instruments Museums of ICOM (CIMCIM) declares that "treatment [of musical instruments] can and should be judged by exactly the same standards applied to treatments of paintings, sculpture, and the decorative arts/" Selected problems in the practice of musical instrument conservation reveals the difficulty of achieving this standard and in addition, that perhaps such a standard is unfitting for what will be argued as the unique character of musical instruments in the museum collection.
