As a result of the project a modern complex infrastructure of museum depositories will be created, which will ensure the storage, documentation and restoration of museum items as well as the usage of depositories for research both for museum employees and visitors.

The message of Dace Melbārde, "In the complex of museum depositories it is planned to place numerous and significant Latvian museum collections, in total more than 2 million storage units. It is one third of the values of all museums of Latvia. The complex of the depositories will make accessible the invisible part of national museum depositories, by allowing to use completely its potential, and will also give an opportunity to increase the visible part of depository in the museums. This voluminous work and elaboration of the depository is a huge step towards the preserving of the collections, ensuring their sustainability and evident benefit for accessibility of these materials."
