Abstract
Spores of many fungal species are present in the air. It is known that main reasons of fungal expansion in museums are inadequate relative humidity, and temperature. Regulation of these two factors can control the germination and development of moulds spores. Isolation and determination of micromycetes from objects which are exhibited and deposited in Museum of Naive Art "Ilijanum" and in the gallery "Sava Sumanovic" in Sid were done. It was analyzed 40 samples from canvas, dyes and wooden frames with visual changes. Many species of genera Alternaria, Aspergillus, Aureobasidium, Cladosporium Drechslera, Epicoccum, Penicillium; Rhizopus, Trichoderma, Ulocladium, and Wardomyces were isolated and determined.
