Tradition of public-friendly temporary exhibitions  

The Gallo-Roman Museum has a track record of organizing temporary exhibitions. In particular, 'Sagalassos, City of Dreams', 'Emperors on the Nile’ and ‘Neanderthals in Europe’ spring to mind. We have always made point of making them accessible, and therefore suitable not just for experts in the field but for everyone with an interest in the distant past.

The temporary exhibitions have always linked up with the museum’s own collection or with the story told by  the  permanent exhibition. Thus we explored themes in greater depth or extended them in time or space. We also drew comparisons with developments and events in areas outside the region which is today known as Limburg.

But above all we brought over to Tongeren collectors’ items from museums abroad, presented them in an atmospheric and contemporary setting and explained them as necessary.
