What are the realities trying to acclimatise timber objects
(furniture, architectural elements, objects etc) to a controlled
museum environment for an exhibition?

The venue has a controlled environment meeting the requirements of
the lending institutions, but the concern lies with the objects
coming from private collections and museums without controlled
environments where regular RH fluctuations may be 20 to 40%, not to
mention the temperature.

Does have advice on reducing the risk of damage from this type of
environmental change.
