Opening Up! — Collection Centre Strategies

Friday 28 May 2021
15:00-18:00 hours / 3 - 6 p.m. CET
Online Event (English spoken)

As a museum professional, how often have you invited a visitor into your museum’s storage facility? Probably never. As a museum visitor, how often have you thought: ‘I’d really like to see the works in storage? Undoubtedly very often. Museum storage facilities have traditionally been invisible and inaccessible to the public, usually housed in anonymous warehouses outside the city or in cellars beneath the museum’s building. But there have been changes in recent years.

An international panel of six speakers will share their experiences of combining collection care with public access within their storage facility.

Opening up! Collection Center Strategies costs € 25,-.
Students pay €12.50. (When registering, please send a copy of your student card to, otherwise the registration will not apply. )
The symposium is free for a number of museum employees, employees of art collections or other organisations who pay an annual contribution to the SBMK. (click here for the conditions).
