Portmoneum, its restoration, the origin of Josef Váchal Museum, and founding of the Restoration School were two sides of the same coin at the beginning. And this is what the exhibition is about. To be admitted, the students must demonstrate exceptional artistic talent and some of them never resign on artistic creation even later when they become professional restorers. The exhibition aims at introducing some of them, especially the "Portmoneum's children", i.e. graduates who together with the teachers experienced the first period of the difficult path that resulted in today's Faculty of Restoration at the University of Pardubice.
