An example of heritage participation


Very proud that we have become a practical example of heritage participation, on the website of Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands.

We are living proof that culture and participation can go well together and that you can achieve unprecedented successes. All this by simply treating everyone equally and by really involving them in the company and its purpose. Besides giving a fantastic feeling, you can also really contribute to the happiness of the people in service.

The museum has been open since March 2018 and currently has around 45 volunteers. Even the volunteers from the very beginning are still active in the company, even during the difficult period. We are often asked what we are most proud of, what is the most special item. We always answer this: Our volunteers are our greatest pride. And of course we are incredibly proud of our collection with some VERY exclusive items, but without volunteers it wouldn’t be like this now.
