It’s nearly here: on 8 January 2018, museum Paleis Het Loo will be closing the doors to the main building for a renovation and expansion programme which will last for three years. During this period, Paleis Het Loo is ‘open, just not as usual’; the gardens and stables will remain accessible to the public from April to September and annual outdoor events, such as the Princesses Days and September Garden Month, will be held.
Until 7 January 2018, the public will be given a last chance to see the palace and its furnishings in the way they are today.
More than thirty years after the opening of Paleis Het Loo as museum, a major renovation is needed. The renovation includes the replacement of technical and climate installations and major asbestos clearance. At the same time, an underground expansion will be constructed, offering more room for special exhibitions and public facilities and which will allow the extensive collection to be presented more fittingly to the museum visitors.
