In 2015 the NAMAC (Dutch General Miniature Cars Club) celebrates its 50th anniversary. One of the major events is the big exhibition in the Louwman Museum in The Hague, the magnificent Dutch museum on automobile history, with a huge and famous collection of vintage cars. In 112 displays the same number of members will display selected topics of their miniature vehicles collections. An accompanying well-illustrated catalogue will be published and two promotional models will be issued on this occasion. The contents of the exhibition will be various. No doubt Dinky Toys will also be on display.
Open: 1 July – 9 August 2015, Tuesday-Sunday 10:00-17:00 h. (Closed on Monday). Location: Louwman Museum Leidsestraatweg 57 2594 BB Den Haag (The Hague) The Netherlands
Mounting the exhibition took place on 27 & 28 June and the opening on 30 June was done by Gijs van Lennep, twice winner of Le Mans. A quick photo impression, showing the mounting, opening and some contents of the exhibition, which is general, various. I just picked out some more vintage brands and models, but there is a lot of modern stuff too. Besides the day of mounting and the opening I went there with two collector friends, in style by Rolls Royce. The final photos illustrate that the permanent museum collection is very much worth while too!
