In our daily life we regularly come in touch with our royal house: the face of our king Willem-Alexander van Oranje-Nassau goes daily from hand to hand on our coins.

Festivities related to the royal family as birthdays, marriages and successions are in the focus of attention and are celebrated until today.


The exhibition ORANGE-SIGNS OF REMEMBRANCE consists of about fifty objects and thirty prints. They show how the last two hundred years the royal family was brought to the attention of the Dutch people and how the Dutch subjects brought tribute to Oranje-Nassau.

Especially the many Oranje-associations, companies and institutions in The Netherlands started the initiative for this. They let produce special commemoration mugs, -plates and -coins. But also the national and local authorities showed themselves very active.


All objects and prints come out of the elaborate Oranje-Nassaucollection brought together by Jan Menze van Diepen (1905-1994).
