Museums, Collections, Objects ...

There are many good reasons to visit museums. Attending an event or an exhibition are just two of these. Museums "show" and "stage", they "educate" and "stimulate". But there is much more to museums than these things: museums are places of safekeeping and research. These are two sides of a museum that are not often visible, yet they build the very core of a museum's visibility. It is the museum objects that are displayed, stored and studied. They are at the center of (almost) all work done in a museum. However, not all of the objects kept in a museum can be showcased at once. Many have to remain in storage, hidden from the visitors.

On this website museums showcase their objects in current exhibits and beyond. More than what can be shown in a museum's viewing space.

A random selection of objects can be found on the right. Click on them to learn more. More objects of interest can be found by using the search bar on the left.

Overviews and descriptions of the various objects, collections, and participating museums are accessible via the navigation bar at the top.

museum-digital: westfalen präsentiert 5000 Objekte aus 40 Museen

Ein Weihrauchschiffchen aus den Museen Burg Altena ist das 5000te Objekt, das museum-digital: westfalen heute präsentiert. 40 Museen zeigen inzwischen eine Auswahl Ihrer Bestände unter: https://westfalen.museum-digital.de/.
Die Sichtbarmachung bisweilen unbekannter, verborgener und vielfach in ihrer Bedeutung unterschätzter Kulturgüter geschieht nicht um ihrer selbst willen; eine attraktive Gestaltung des Portals mit ansprechendem Design weckt das Interesse von fachlich Interessierten und Touristen. Museumsobjekte institutionenübergreifend zu finden ist ein wichtiger Beitrag zur kulturellen Bildung. Die Vereinigung Westfälischer Museen fördert das Objektportal aktiv.
