vzw Vrienden van het Jakob Smits Museum

On 19 February 1977, a number of enthusiastic volunteers opened the museum’s doors for the very first time. The ‘Vrienden van het Jakob Smits Museum’ (Friends of the Jakob Smits Museum) are the foundation of the museum's existence. The museum today is the product of decades of positive energy, the product of the collaboration of dozens of people who knew and know that Jakob Smits had something to offer.

The Friends' association wishes to honor the work of Jakob Smits and make it more widely known to a larger public, thereby also contributing to the cultural image of the municipality of Mol. They organize exhibitions, provide publications about Smits, furnish catalogues for exhibitions, books and the publication of the museum magazine.
