Daily events and special occasions determine the rhythm of our lives. Days become weeks, months become years. The new House of Alijn reveals habits, traditions and rituals that remind us of a recent or more distant past. From your very first baby photos, games of marbles in the playground and the first person to break your heart to annual summer holidays, celebrating your retirement and saying goodbye to a loved one. How we deal with these moments and emotions evolves over time: it is both personal and universal. The museum’s story takes you on a journey through a rich collection of objects, photos, sounds and moving images, showing that everyday life is anything but ordinary.
