Exhibition design for the permanent presentation of the National Museum of Education, located on the ground floor of its brand new accommodation: the beautiful building ‘De Holland’, designed and realised by the dutch architect Sybold van Ravesteyn in the years 1937-1939. The presentation displays a rather large selection from the over 350.000 widely divergent objects that constitute the collection of the museum; from textbooks, wall-charts, ink jars, atlases, photo’s and educational films to diaries and schoolbags.

The design for the exhibition starts from a re-interpretation of the original interior design and layout for the building by van Ravesteyn, based on historical documents, drawings and photographs found in the archives of Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam.
