Collection Value

Tangible and intangible collections are at the heart of museums.

NEMO wants to see that collections are well taken care of for present and future generations and are as widely accessible to all people as possible. They reflect different perspectives, cultural complexity and are used in multiple ways for the benefit of the society.

The collections are not seen as a core of the museum work and a funding priority. The visibility of collection-related work is on a low level, museums do not always have adequate resources for taking proper care of their collections and making optimal use of them.

NEMO advocates for the manifold values of collections and provides a platform for museums to exchange good practices for the conservation, preservation, research, accessibility, interpretation and innovative use of museum collections.
