Collection management

The collections of the Natural History Museum of Denmark are managed by the museum’s curators and collection managers in collaboration with the Deputy Director for collections. The Collection section is responsible for the practical day-to-day management of the collections, while the curators are responsible for the scientific management.

The Museum manages its collection through a set of policies. These outline a long-term framework to guide decision-making in relation to the museum’s collections. They set out the principles that govern the museum’s approach to acquisition, collection development, loans, collection care and maintenance, registration and access, as well as research and outreach activities.
