Project Description

Deaccessioning in Czech Republic

The Czech Republic works with a classification scheme, in which all museum objects are classified as cultural monuments. No guidelines and other tools have been developed.

By law all classified objects can be declassified under strict circumstances. Next to this, transferring objects to other museums is common. This, however is not regarded as a form of disposal or deaccessioning.
