Museums, Collections, Objects ...

There are many good reasons to visit museums. Attending an event or an exhibition are just two of these. Museums "show" and "stage", they "educate" and "stimulate". But there is much more to museums than these: museums are places of safekeeping and research. These are two sides of a museum that are not often visible, yet they build the very core of a museum's visibility. It is the museum objects that are displayed, stored and studied. They are at the center of (almost) all work done in a museum. However, not all of objects kept in a museum can be showcased at once. Much has to remain in storage, hidden from the visitors.

On this website museums showcase their objects, in current exhibits and beyond. More than what can be shown in a museum's viewing space.

A random selection of objects can be found on the right. Click on them to learn more. More objects of interest can be found by using the search bar on the left.
