Behind the scenes museum staff works to ensure the National Museum's collections are taken care of and shown to the public in the best possible way.

The National Museum’s collection management includes the handling and transporting of works of art, storage, preventive conservation (collections care), conservation and restoration, digitization and documentation of the collections, as well as the mounting of works for exhibitions. Conducting research on the museum’s holdings is also part of such collection management at the National Museum.

The aim of managing the National Museum’s collections is to conserve our cultural heritage for future generations. Such management includes the various activities and measures that ensure that the collections are safeguarded, enhanced, developed, documented, and made available to the general public in accordance with today’s professional standards.
