Since 1984, after a thorough restoration, the former royal palace Het Loo has been open to the public. The furnished rooms and chambers have all you would expect to see in a palace: high ceilings, thick carpets, sculptures, paintings...
...and beautifully decorated ceilings like this one.
The last residents of the palace were Princess Margriet and Professor Pieter van Vollenhoven. Together with their 4 sons they lived in the East Wing from 1967 to 1975.
From January 2018 the palace is going to be renovated again, for essential maintenance. I´m glad we were able to visit it now, as the museum buildings will be closed until 2021.
