To prevent the further spread of the coronavirus, we will stay closed until 19 April 2020, if necessary until 3 May 2020. This also means that you can no longer visit this temporary exhibition.

The MMP1917 collection holds some 12,000 objects. Part of these are in storage. Until 10 April 2020 the temporary exhibition 'In good hands' explains how the museum stores and manages these pieces. This is quite a challenge for the collection manager, Evy Van De Voorde. The different types of material each require a different approach. In addition to the museum depot, the display cases must also remain dust-free and therefore, they must constantly be monitored for fluctuations in temperature and relative humidity. A stable storage environment guarantees that the collection will be preserved for the future.


Location: MMP1917, Berten Pilstraat 5a, 8980 Zonnebeke
Opening hours: every day, between 9.00 a.m. and 6 p.m., last entrance at 4.30 p.m.
