You can ask the museum experts about topics related to the collections, such as furniture industry products, posters, radio and television, winter sports and sports in general, or art. Answers are offered free of charge in cases where more extensive research is not required. The museum does not actively monitor the antique and art markets or provide any estimates on the current prices of objects or works of art. You can contact the conservators if you need material specifications or care instructions. 

Ordering images for your personal use from the image collections is one of the most popular collection services. Click here for more detailed instructions. 

You can also book an appointment and come to the museum yourself to explore the archives or use the museum’s reference library. Materials from the archives and library cannot be removed from the museum facilities. You can also place an order for an object in the collections for research. The retrieval of collection items from storage is a service subject to a charge that requires a research permit. 

The museum’s staff are happy to instruct and guide you in the use of the research services.
