Hemoglobin’s purpose is to carry important biological molecules like oxygen and carbon dioxide. Myoglobin’s purpose is to store oxygen within itself. Myoglobin’s stored oxygen are often times used by the muscles when there is a huge need of the oxygen upon physical activities to create energy.

myoglobin transports oxygen to muscle cells. while hemoglobin carries oxygen to the blood and tissues in the body. it also helps transport carbon dioxide and hydrogen ions.

They are both hemeproteins. Their main physiological value is their ability to bind to oxygen.
