Museum aan het Vrijthof Maastricht

500 years Made in Maastricht

Under the motto “500 Years Made in Maastricht” the visitor is taken five centuries back in time. The main focus lies on the arts and crafts that have flourished in this city of artisans, and have expressed its citizens’ cultural identity as tangible products of creative enterprise. Through the various buildings and spaces of the museum the visitor is transported back from the recent (the ceramics industry) to the distant past (Charles V) and encounters a number of historical characters along the way.

The concept of style rooms has been chosen as the base for the design: several authentic style rooms are alternated with modern design variants (classically styled but carried out in distinctive white). Kinkorn has displayed several oversized porcelain figurines that provide the scenes with relativistic commentary.

In the last room, ‘genius loci’, the characters return in a multimedia setting with paintings that come to life: here all of them, over the centuries, discuss the history of Maastricht.
