MoMu often receives donations from people who inherited objects such as grandma’s hat in its original hat box with an old business card from a local fashion store. Such objects can be extremely valuable for historical research and used to make a reconstruction of the heart of Antwerp’s fashion district. On Heritage Day MoMu we’ll be exhibiting a number of peculiar donations along with its cultural story.
