Mission

The Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics connects the worlds of East and West, and the past and present, on the basis of ceramics. It brings lovers of culture into contact with its high-quality collection, and provides broader insights through excellent contextualisation. The museum actively develops this collection, also to inspire new generations of artists. As a cultural venue in Leeuwarden, the Princessehof affirms the contemporary and international value of ceramics.

Collection Strategy 2011–2015

The Collection Strategy 2011–2015 is the Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics’ second collection plan, and follows directly on from the 2006–2010 Collection Plan.

The first collection plan recorded and described all the objects in the museum’s ceramic collections, and compared them to other collections in the Netherlands. The second plan specifies museum policy for the entire collection and defines its deployment in the context of the museum’s ambitions and in line with its mission and aims.
