Textile products, an important part of our cultural heritage, carry important clues about our history. While the necessary cleaning and protection conditions are provided for the textile products in the museums and private collections, it is not possible to provide suitable conditions for those who are trying to keep the textile products left in their families at home. The lack of information in the conditions of cleaning, protection and storage, inadequacy of physical conditions are made impossible to transfer many products to the next generations.In view of Turkey's textile heritage, it is seen that conservation and restoration studies are inadequate. It has been seen that the conservation of textile products in the Ethnography Department of the Antalya Museum cannot be done fully due to reasons such as inadequacy of the number of experts in the field, lack of infrastructure and materials. Textile conservation laboratories exist in many museums in Turkey, but inadequacies in working and storage conditions cause conservation work. In this study, storage and exhibition conditions of textile products in Antalya Museum Ethnography Department and conservation studies were examined.
