A glimpse of the collection

The Visible Storage of the MAS gives you a free look behind the scenes. It shows how the museum preserves and manages part of its giant collection for the future. The exhibition treats you to a surprising look at a number of MAS objects.

Each item in the MAS collection tells different stories about the city, about the port, about the world. But each of them also tells a human story. Who made the object? Who collected it or who used it? By telling the story of the people behind the objects, the new exhibition exposes the biography of the heritage.

Get to know the people behind the museum object and see how the piece itself comes to life. In the Visible Storage we present a selection of the new acquisitions of the MAS collection and we show how collection pieces are restored to be shown in new exhibitions. Come and have a look at the collection and take a look behind the scenes of the museum.
