The Museu Nacional’s Archive was created in 1995 for the purpose of managing the institution’s archive material. Since 1997 it has also promoted and introduced the museum’s Document Management System (pdf). In the Art Archives, more than 60 archive collections related to artists and associated cultural businesses complement the museum’s collections, given that they include documents that help us to understand the art world through the complexity of the distinctive personal characteristics of the creators and of the movements and companies that operate in the context of artistic creation.

The two sides of the Archive, one giving support and encouragement to the museum’s research and activities, through the Art Archives, and the other as the manager and administrator of the system of production of administrative documents, makes all the archive collections kept in the institution available to the scientific and social community in order to facilitate their use and dissemination.
