Hungarian National Museum

National Centre of Museological Methodology and Information

The National Centre of Museological Methodology and Information (OMMIK) was created in 2011, as the successor to the Central Museum Directory. OMMIK is a department of the Hungarian National Museum.

In addition to management and coordination activities, our goal is to function as a clearninghouse of information and cooperation among Hungarian and international museums. For museums in Hungary, we provide information on international trends and best practices. For colleagues and visitors from around the world, we provide a comprehensive introduction to Hungary’s network of institutions.

 

One of our key international programs is the MuseumDigit conference, held annually since 2013. MuseumDigit is a two-day innovative international showcase for cultural heritage and museum professionals, IT researchers, communication and creative developers, and experts from the business and public sectors.
