As good as new
Restauration, a skill to learn

A lot of paintings from the 17th century seem brand new! Yet they are nearly 400 years old. Over time they’ve become dirty or damaged and therefore need to be restored. In this program you will learn how to do that.

Together with a museum teacher you will first look at a few paintings in the museum that have already been restored or might need to be restored in the future. Afterwards you will get to work with cleaning and restoring your own painting as a real conservator.


  • Duration: about 90 minutes.
  • Age: the workshop is suitable for children between 7 and 12 years old. Adults are very welcome too!
  • Cost: €7 per person (adult/child). 50% discount with the 'Vakantiepas'.
  • Entryticket for museum: not needed for this tour.
