The National Museum Conservation and Storage Centre (OMRRK) stores almost 350,000 works of art on behalf of the Museum of Fine Arts, the Hungarian National Gallery and the Museum of Ethnography to a high professional and technical standard. The block of buildings presents a long-term solution to decades of cataloguing and warehousing problems associated with the national public collection. The Hungarian development is a worthy peer of London’s British Museum and the specialist institutions of Musée du Louvre, Paris currently under construction in terms of its capabilities, equipment, and capacity alike.

The complex is located close to Városliget (City Park) and was built as part of the Liget Budapest Project. The world-class art warehouses, conservation studios, diagnostic labs and art halls spread across 37,000 square metres, housed in four subterranean and three above-ground buildings. The collection of buildings is enclosed by a 13,000-square-metre park accessible to the public during opening hours.
