Skokloster castle, located north of Stockholm, has a rich collection of furnishing and decorative objects of various kinds dating back to the 17th century. The castle has no active climate control. The objective of this paper is to investigate the deterioration of selected objects correlated to outdoor climate over a 300 year period and to analyse the preservation strategy chosen at Skokloster. The results show that the selected object overall were in good condition, as the were selected to represent the whole collection this would indicate a major part of the collection has been relatively well preserved and that the strategy of “doing nothing” has been favourable.
