How to identify, preserve and work with authenticity in House Museums and Collection Museums in the Nordic countries.

A network meeting for curators, researchers and conservator-restorers working with house museums and collection museum in the Nordic Countries.

In a museum landscape of ever increasing pressure to present success and output, it is important to remember who we are and why we are here. House and collection museums in the Nordic countries have a rich history linked to lived life, to artists and to collectors. These are museums that make history present through intimacy and atmosphere. In all this, authenticity is a prime concern. But house and collection museums also face their unique challenges. The seminar “Stay Real” brings us together to share experiences and research across disciplines such as history, conservation, cultural history, museum studies and art history.

We are proud to present the key-note:

Is there a museum in the house?
