Six outstanding museums in the Netherlands, including the Eindhoven Van Abbemuseum invite visitors to make a choice from their collection and create their own exhibition.
This project, Mix Match Museum, is started 10 October and is visible until 10 January 2015. During this period visitors will be able to browse through the collections of the Amsterdam Museum, the Groninger Museum, the Kröller-Müller Museum, Museum Boerhaave, Museum Twentse Welle and the Van Abbemuseum on www.mixmatchmuseum.nl . These museums represent each a different part of Dutch cultural heritage. From actual modern art (the Van Abbemuseum) up to objects used more then a hundred years ago in Amsterdam (the Amsterdam Museum)

Cultural heritage and technology
The curators from the six museums have each chosen 50 items out of their own collections. These 300 works are joined together in an online platform, ready to be picked out and combined into a personal exhibition.
Each exhibition that is submitted can be viewed on the website. A blog is created to discuss the different selections. Visitors are in control by making new connections.
By using digital possibilities, visitors are invited to play a different and more active role regarding cultural heritage collections in Dutch museums.
Out of the 300 works that are presented online, visitors can pick their favourite pieces. They also have to give their motivation why they picked these specific works. The most inspirational exhibitions will actually be carried out and can be seen in the participating museums in the 2015 Museum Week (18-24 April 2015).
