The National Conservation Centre in Liverpool, England is the conservation department of National Museums Liverpool. It is based in The Midland Railway Goods Offices.

The centre was created as a result of a report by the former National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside (now National Museums Liverpool) identifying a large need for conservation work locally and nationally. The building was opened to the public in October 1996, and a Royal Opening by HRH The Prince of Wales followed in December that year.[1] The public could view displays of conserved objects and see demonstrations of conservation techniques, and there were additional exhibitions, often photographic, in a separate exhibition space.

On 11 December 2010 it was announced that due to budget cuts the flagship conservation centre will permanently close its doors to the public. The centre closed its doors at 5pm on Friday 17 December 2010.[2] The conservation work done there will continue and its permanent exhibition – 'Revealed: the Hidden Stories of Objects' – will be moved to the World Museum.
