Tordino – Preparations for Open Monumentendag

25th August 2018 – In two weeks time, there is Open Monumentendag. I have a special exhibition about Belgian shipping. The last preparations were done today. Some frames and paintings can’t be lifted by one person. Earlier this year, one of the paintings came loose, felt down and damaged one of the boat models.

Tordino – Camera for monitoring the entrance

9th August 2018 – I bought a camera and a wireless router. The idea is to monitor the entrance of Tordino while I’m working in the Library. So I can easily follow if people are getting aboard the ship.

I work in the IT world and on the package of both items was mentioned ‘easy setup’. It took me nearly three hours and a lot of watching on Youtube to get everything running!

The camera wil be mounted Saturday morning. Hopefully everything will work!
 
 

Tordino – First opening

14th July 2018 – Starting from today, Museumschip Tordino is open every second and fourth Saturday of the month. I wasn’t totally ready, so I worked in the morning hiding my tools and hovering the ship.

There were around 12 people who came. This was a good result knowing I didn’t make any publicity besides on Facebook to some friends.

Tordino – Getting some books

6th July 2018 – Through Monumentenwacht, I received a big collection of magazines and books for the Library of Museumschip Tordino. I drove to Ghent to pick them up. On the way back I stopped in Ikea to get some boxes to put them in!
