We believe that the musical functionality of our collection is inextricably bound to the collection’s (historic) value: by demonstrating our collection live, our visitors are able to experience the instruments in an authentic way. Therefore, functionality is a primary goal when restoring our objects. The choices our curator and restorers make in pursuing that goal – for instance replacing broken parts with more modern, durable versions – naturally become subject of discussion within the museum community.

In these annual Expert Meetings, Museum Speelklok aims to stimulate the debate about conservation and restoration ethics and guidelines. During the symposium, specialized speakers will talk about many facets of the restoration process when dealing with ‘functioning heritage’: tangible and intangible, mobile and musical.
