How do objects get into the museum’s collection? This is shown using the example of two ensembles consisting of 19th and 20th century Catholic objects: a former private collection of devotional pictures and religious picture editions for domestic use, as well as furnishings and liturgical objects from the city of Luxembourg's Church of St. Michael (including statues of saints, baldachins, flags, candlesticks and stained glass windows). The visitor learns how the museum curators select objects, how they are incorporated, documented and, if necessary, restored so that they can then be stored in the depot or exhibited. The exhibition also provides an opportunity to rediscover the meaning and purpose of the religious objects.
