Heritage Malta’s Conservation Division in Bighi provides conservation-restoration, preventive conservation, and scientific diagnostic services to all the museums and sites managed by the national agency. This division operates state-of-the-art diagnostic and conservation laboratories where the conservation of all kinds of artefacts is undertaken. These include paintings, metals, ceramics, stone, textiles, books and works of art on paper and wood.

The Collections Management Department handles all recording and, in certain cases, manages or coordinates acquisitions, mobility of collections\items for purposes of loans, project monitoring for conservation projects and the population of MUSES – Heritage Malta’s in-house collections database.
