Collection

Loans policy

The Princessehof generally loans as many objects as possible to other institutions at home and abroad to increase the visibility of the collection. Annually around 30,000 objects are loaned.

temporary halt to loans

From 1 October 2016 to 1 April 2018 we will impose a temporary halt to new loans applications. However, loan applications for the period after 1 April 2018 can still be submitted. Our usual loan terms apply. However, it will take longer for us to make a commitment. We ask for your understanding for these limited loan options. For more information, please contact Jos Taekema, Head of Collections: j.taekema@friesmuseum.nl

Loans procedure

To establish whether a loan is possible, we check the availability of the work and its condition. In addition, it is important to determine if and how we are able to transport it. This is why we emphasise receiving applications for both short- and long-term loans at least three months in advance. Loans are granted subject to conditions. You can request a loan by sending a letter to our director Kris Callens.
