The main goal of this work was the identification and quantification of the specific risks affecting the collections in the storage building of Palma de Baixo. These collections belong to the Museu de Lisboa and they are very diversified: ceramics, paintings, furniture, graphic documents and textiles. The methodology used to identify the risk and calculate its magnitude was based on the risk analysis model proposed by Waller, entitled "Cultural Property Risk Analysis Model". The results showed that the main risks for these collections are the high variations in relative humidity, water-based floor cleaning, poor organization of spaces leading to overcrowding and finally, inappropriate labeling of objects. The furniture and painting collections are the ones at greater risk. Mitigation proposals were also made for the main risks encountered.
