Acquisition Committee


Acquisition Commitee

The main task of this committee is to ensure the systematic expansion of the collections of the Jewish Museum in Prague. It sets priorities for the Museum's acquisition policy and prepares expert opinions which provide a basis for the purchase of collection items, both directly from owners and via auctions. Individual members accept offers and submit them for assessment by the five-member committee which is convened when required. Other Museum experts as well as external specialists are brought in for occasional consultations.
