National Centre of Museological Methodology and Information

The National Centre of Museological Methodology and Information (OMMIK) was established in 2011, as a successor of the Central Museum Directory.

As a department of the Hungarian National Museum with a national reach and field of action, we build bridges between Hungarian and international museums and heritage institutions. We are catalysts for change and dialogue showcasing the best and latest museum trends and innovations, and supporting exciting projects across the country. 

MuseumDigit, our annual international conference on digital innovations and current trends in the museum world, is a unique opportunity to bring together museum professionals and the for profit sector to explore the challenges of the digital age, opportunities for cooperation and envision the museums of the future.

OMMIK’s mission is to make information, knowledge and know-how accessible to the Hungarian GLAM sector through our services (available in Hungarian only): MuseuMap – national collection of digital images, MuzeumStat – national database of Hungarian museum and public collection statistics, MuzeumInfo – news, reports, workshops, training for the museum sector, MuseumLearning – online courses for museum workers.

The Hungarian National Museum is the appointed museum aggregator in the Public Collection Digitisation Strategy (Közgyűjteményi Digitalizálási Stratégia). OMMIK’s role is providing expertise, managing digitisation processes, data enrichment and connecting museums’ collections to the Europeana Collections database.
