Warriors out of the Playpen
Building forts, rescuing the fair princess from the bloodthirsty hands of the foe, playing indians, vanquishing Darth Vader in a light-sabre skirmish….with the unbridled imagination of a child, the playroom is the ideal backdrop for the fiercest of battles.
Into battle with pencil and pen, Louis Raemaekers (1869 – 1956) rediscovered
The museum is devoting attention to the fascinating life and work of Louis Raemaekers. About fifty drawings will be presented in their historical context.
Alphons Hustinx - The Second World War in colour
Authentic photos or films from the Second World War are mostly in black & white. Alphons Hustinx (1900-1972) was one of the first Dutch photographers to work in colour.
The last witnesses (stories about war and liberation)
War children from Limburg get to speak in the exhibition, The last witnesses. Their stories have been recorded and will be presented together with the objects so reminiscent of that time. The commemorative exhibition takes young and old back in time and gives the Second World War a meaningful, human face.
From Neanderthal Man to city-dweller
The renewed presentation of the Prehistory, Roman Era and the Middle Ages is based on personal experiences from visitors. You learn more about the past in your own way and get in touch with objects from bygone times.
