"I have no hesitation in recommending Momart. Moving high-value precious artworks is always stressful for a curator, but the Momart team – both site technicians and office staff - have always been calm and capable, and each event was run very smoothly."

"Momart have contributed to us achieving some of the most complex and technically challenging exhibitions we have programmed in the last thirty years. We are very proud of our collaborations with them. The team are a pleasure to work with, offering innovative solutions to what may seem like the impossible, providing positive contributions at all stages of a project."
