Paleis Het Loo Closes for Three-Year Renovation Project

On 8 January 2018, museum Paleis Het Loo will be closing the doors to the main building for a renovation and expansion program which will last for three years.

More than thirty years after the opening of Paleis Het Loo as a 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 (850 m2 in total) and public facilities and which will allow the extensive collection to be presented more fittingly to the museum visitors.

During the renovation period, the gardens and stables of Paleis Het Loo will remain accessible to the public from April to September. Detailed information about the project, including artist impressions of the renovated rooms and a design plan, is available at the website of the palace in the ‘Renewed & Renovated‘ section.
