For the 13th edition visitors were able to witness numerous activities at the MoMu library: old fashion illustrations were cleaned, our MoMu-volunteer Maria sewed inventory number in 19th century clothing and a jacket by Maison Martin Margiela was analyzed for the preservation of synthetic material.

The day was all about showing the public how the MoMu Collection is protected and preserved!
