it's housed in a huge building with 3 sets of doors to keep the environment optimal for preservation. It was flushed with a mix of water and polyethylene glycol for 17 years to replace the water in the wood with preservative.

We saw this on Sunday, I had to post some pics. It sunk in 1628 on it's maiden voyage- top heavy, never should have been built- and lay in Stockholm harbor for 333 years. Over 90% of it is original.
