The Historic House Museums International Committee/DEMHIST came into being in 1999 as part of the International Council of Museums/ICOM with the express aim of working to increase international awareness of the importance and great value of house museums. DEMHIST is the forum for proposing and debating key criteria for the management and conservation of house-museums. The enormous variety characteristic of the artistic assets displayed in such museums calls for innovative strategies to deal with specific challenges in the areas of conservation and restoration, safety, education and communication.
