Secret of the smith

Discover the trade secrets of the smith in the Dutch Silver Museum! But what could the secret be about? How does a silver smith or a gold smith create certain objects? Even some of the experts still wonder how some objects are made. In this exposition we take you behind the scenes to discover how some of the objects are actually made. During this exhibition you experience how the trade of the silver smith has evolved in the past centuries. You also learn more about how the modern day smith challenges himself to use innovative techniques. Until January 29th 2023.

Strings Attached

This exhibition is renewed! Maja Houtman and Karin Kortenhorst are an interesting couple. What do they have in common? Wire. Although they both work with silver wires, their work could not be more different. Maja works with meters of thin wire to create wearable objects. Karin creates more sculptural objects. A fascinating exhibition was the result of bringing their work together.
