Museum For 1 Day: A unique experience!

Museum For 1 Day is a very special way of visiting a museum. The program is specifically designed for elderly people in nursing homes who are not able to visit a regular museum anymore.
A well-trained storyteller brings the collection alive together with the inhabitants.
The storyteller involves the inhabitants actively in the stories by letting them listen, see, feel, smell and taste, and by stimulating them to interact with the presentation.

Museum For 1 Day is erected for a morning or afternoon in the trusted environment of the inhabitants. The collection consists of cultural heritage and contemporary art objects from a variety of local museums. The objects and the stories evoke curiosity, stimulate the senses and bring personal memories and stories from the elderly to life.
Museum For 1 Day is experienced as an inspiring and educational gift to the people who enjoy the cosy atmosphere.
