Project Description

Deaccessioning in Hungary

The praxis of deaccessioning and disposal is not quite common in Hungary.

However, there is a lot of legislation providing different forms of deaccessioning and disposal of museum objects. Museum professionals are starting to realize that these are necessary tools for good collections management, but want more knowledge and experience on the subject before implementing it in their own institutions.
