An analysis of the north European climate and of the preservation requirements of typical museum objects suggests a suitable low energy method of air-conditioning a museum store designed to hold relatively durable materials. Outside air is sucked in when its water vapour content is unusually low while the temperature is raised slightly to give a relative humidity not far below the limit for biological growth. This combination gives a low degradation rate for both objects and the building that encloses them.
