The priority task of the conservation specialists is to preserve archaeological finds discovered in the territory of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania and the Museum's collections through a combination of preventive, interventive and analytical techniques. Museum conservation specialists work with various archaeological and historical artefacts of metal, pottery, glass, wood, leather, and easel painting. Their work includes the study, conservation, stabilisation, long-term preservation, and restoration of each type of material. Alongside researchers from other departments, the conservation specialists contribute to our knowledge of each artefact's manufacture, meaning and context.

Preventive conservation is an integral part of this work: it includes the preparation of exhibits for storage and display, monitoring preserved artefacts (in cooperation with the custodians of collections), ensuring suitable conditions for their display and preparation for transportation when leaving for exhibitions. The dendrochronology laboratory researches the reconstruction of wooden structures unearthed during the archaeological explorations of the Vilnius Lower Castle and the housing development of the area.
