Stadsmuseum Tilburg

Stadsmuseum Tilburg
With every activity, Stadsmuseum Tilburg takes the stories and identity of the city’s inhabitants as a point of departure. These people “made” the city or “made” it into the world. Their stories bring forth new ones or bring about new activities or presentations.

The City Collection needs to be managed professionally. The stories and the City Collection would form an ideal part of an educational centre for cultural heritage and Tilburg’s urban identity, a place that brings these stories to life, a place where visitors play an active part, and that functions as a meeting point with regard to the heritage of the people of Tilburg. At this moment the centre has yet to be founded. However, according to the new plans for cultural policy, the City of Tilburg takes a very positive stance about this. In 2011, the plans will be further elaborated.

Two ‘workplaces’ have been established: ‘Vincents Tekenlokaal’ (a digital drawing room), and the online story database ‘Geheugen van Tilburg’.
