From a century of plaster casts from New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art kept in the MoNTUE collection to mundane household items from everyday life, a myriad of displays and experience activities related to the preservation and restoration of cultural relics can be enjoyed here. The actual on-site work of the master restorers is a permanent display, and together with DIY restoration experiences forms a key feature of the gallery. Members of the public can enjoy visiting a single exhibition multiple times, for on each occasion they will view a new stage of progress in the restoration work, along with different finished artifacts and displays. This novel approach to displays offers visitors a unique viewing experience and many pleasant surprises.
