 MÜM in a few words

The story really begins in 1975 when Samuël Glotz inaugurates a museum juxtaposing European masked traditions: the similarities between them are indeed striking, but so is the cultural diversity reflected by them. Since then, the Museum's collections have been continuously enlarged. Today it preserves about 10 000 masks and costumes (as well as, for example, ritual objects and accessories used in festivals, musical instruments, puppets, posters). It shows the multiple faces of the mask: from the mask in Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and America as well as the carnival mask, the theatre mask or the ritual mask to the archaeological, the old and the contemporary mask.

The Mask Museum has widely spread activities: permanent and temporary exhibitions (at the museum or in other places), publications, pedagogical activities (including holiday workshops and birthday parties), a documentation centre etc.


Since 24 June the Museum has reopened its doors to the public. During the whole summer you will have the opportunity to visit our new exhibition “The Vonpischmeyer Collection”.
