Object of the month – out from the archives

All objects have a story to tell. What lies hidden in our archives?

In most museum archives there are objects which unfortunately seldom or never see the light of day. This is also true for Alta Museum. There are things which we know very little about. Others don't fit in with the themes of our current exhibitions. But this doesn't mean that they should be confined to an invisible life, hidden away in a locked storeroom where no light shines and time stands still.

In order to do something about this, every month we take up something new from the storeroom which has lain unseen for far too long. Every visitor who comes into the museum's foyer can see the object of the month, either on its own or together with others, and displayed with an explanatory text.
