The doors of the museum site of the basilica are open for general public since Saturday, June 4th, 2016. Since Bruns has been working there for the last months, the church treasures are now revealed in all their splendor.

The collection of the Teseum counts 259 special collection items. How they came in Tongeren? Who took care of it? What do they mean? You can get the answers to these questions via a multimedia guide. Children and young people are introduced to the church treasures, albeit on a cool and contemporary manner.

The unique collection of fascinating stories and high tech go hand in hand in the new Teseum. Every effort is made to appeal to both you and old. Children and young people follow their own course with an app that suits their environment. One learns about the basilica, how it came about, what it is made and how it is used.

In a sublime historical context – the chapter house, Romanesque tower, convent, cloister and monastery gardens – you can see the rich collection of the church treasure displayed in the new museum. This treasure, is extraordinary and practically complete, and includes arts from the 6th to the 20th century.

The modern scenography, by designers Bailleul and Michel Janssen, takes you to a unique museum experience through the ancient church treasure. At the heart of the museum you can find historical treasure. A toning’s form in 1516 (compared to a current flyer) – today preserved at The British Library – shows the church treasure in 1516 as then publicly shown to the faithful. Unique to this fact that 90% of the objects are shown on the form sill, 500 years later, is in the possession of Tongeren.

You will also be sucked into the strong musical character of the collection. The medieval manuscripts are brought to life thanks to the collaboration with the Alamire Foundation, International Center for Study of Music in the Lower Countries. The thematic story ends at the Coronation Celebrations, a few years ago recognized as Flemish Intangible Cultural Heritage. Thus, the bridge is established between past, present and future.
