Museum storage buildings should be able to provide a considerable stable indoor environment in terms of temperature and relative humidity (RH). To obtain such stable conditions with the lowest possible energy consumption, passive air conditioning is one-way solution. In this paper, indoor environment facilities of a passive museum storage building in Vejle region in Denmark, are investigated. Results demonstrate that the weather conditions of the previous yearś considerably affect the indoor environment of the storage. What is more, concentrated dehumidification is a sufficient technique to maintain RH within acceptable levels. Therefore, renewable energy such us excess wind energy during the night can be utilized.
