Museum Opening Day

The Museum Opened on 16 June, 2012

The Museum of Forks opened the exposition to the layman and professional public on Saturday 16 June, 2012. On that day there were various accompanying activities to underline the importance of the event. Nothing commercial. Don't even think about it…It was just the forkies and the forkologists, demonstrating their enthusiasm and dedication - across the cultures and across the genres. 

On the evening before the BIG DAY (15 June 2012), the Barbar Bar in Bruntal  hosted a warm-up performance of the music bands whose concerts were planned for the Saturday in the Museum of Forks.
