The exhibition was scheduled to run until 9 July 2000. However, six days after the opening a disastrous fireworks explosion took place near the museum that damaged the building and forced the museum to close its doors for several months. The objects in the van Strij exhibition were examined for condition and when necessary repaired before being returned to their owners.
