The MOT in Grimbergen is launching a highly original exhibition. MOT & GO is the do-it-yourself shop for drive and transmission. Not a real shop, of course, but a new, interactive exhibition where you can find out more about natural propulsion and mechanical transmission by trial and error. It's no coincidence that MOT & GO is located in the Tommenmolen, a grain water mill on the Maelbeek.
Scan and shop
Using a smartphone or tablet with ErfgoedApp you can scan assignments and solutions. Paint cans (which you can also scan with the app) allow you to create a timeline. You can shop in the inclined plane, lever and wheel and axle departments, with shop racks where brand new tools and old collection pieces complement each other nicely. An unprecedented arrangement that allows you to experience technology in a completely different way.
By using an app instead of a guidebook, larger groups can easily spread out in the exhibition and carry out the assignments in small groups or individually. Thanks to the app, the exhibition is available in Dutch, English and French. Moreover, in the exhibition there are no video screens or long texts, because all films and texts come to life with the help of the ErfgoedApp. A successful combination!
For the realisation of this innovative concept, the MOT received financial support from the province of Flemish Brabant. Design, content and realisation were carried out entirely by the MOT staff. The concept for the DIY shop came from design agency Exponanza. The ErfgoedApp was included in the development of the exhibition concept from the outset. Also graphically everything was worked out to perfection in the app.
Open: from April to September at weekends and on public holidays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Visitors should prepare for their visit by downloading the ErfgoedApp download. MOT tablets are available for those who wish.
