facilities and the substantial collection can be presented in a better way to the museum visitors. Are you curious about the design of the new Paleis Het Loo? Watch the video on www.paleishetloo.com/renovation

THE ARCHITECT
After a careful and thorough procedure, the architect selection committee of Paleis Het Loo has unanimously chosen the design put forward by Dikkie Scipio, KAAN Architecten from Rotterdam. Their ambitious design, inspired by the layout and dimensions of the palace, logically incorporates all of the required facilities and spaces while expressing a grandeur appropriate for a leading museum.

PALEIS HET LOO IN 2021
The renewed, renovated and improved palace is finished in 2021. Visitors are treated to a warm reception in a regal setting. The House of Orange and the Junior Palace present engaging visuals and information, the palace rooms will have been
completely renovated and the temporary exhibition space has its first presentation. The gardens, stables and palace will once again be a unified and compelling whole. Museum Paleis Het Loo is ready for the future.

PALEIS HET LOO IN 2020
As the palace is being renewed, renovated and improved and finished in 2021, our gardens and stables square are still open for visitors in 2020. We have an exiting programme from April trough the end of September in 2020.

THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY WORRIES
‘The Garden of Earthly Worries’, with four monumental contemporary art works designed by the Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind. It’s the first time that contemporary art is on show in the garden of Paleis Het Loo. Conceived as a sculptural and conceptual counterpoint to the ordered beauty of the palace garden; the gardens of the 17th century represent a perceived paradise, man’s perfection of nature. But, due to technology and human intervention, our
current planet is rapidly changing. A must see at Paleis Het Loo and a platform for climat change discussion.
