The Cultural Heritage Agency wants to make the State art collection more accessible, by putting items on permanent or temporary display in museums. We also loan items to ministries and Dutch embassies.

Around half the items in the collection are on loan.

Loans may be short-term or long-term. Items are also loaned to non-museum institutions, provided they can guarantee their safety and physical preservation. The terms and conditions of the loan are set out in a loan agreement.

What kind of items can be requested?

  • paintings and sculptures
  • applied arts (furniture, ceramics, glass, textiles, design etc.)

Showroom collection

In the showroom you will find a selection of items in good condition which need little or no work on them, for which loan arrangements can be made quickly. As a result, we are able to loan these items at attractive rates. The costs incurred are only those associated with making the item presentable and with packaging, transport and installation. A charge will also be made for any special presentation facilities required, such as pedestals or display cases.
