Together with photographer Sander van den Bosch, we are measuring and photographing all floors of the palace. Visitors will soon be walking on 'invisible' carpets, in order to experience the original atmosphere of the rooms as fully as possible. Paleis Het Loo

Invitation for the visitor

It functions as a zone between inside and outside town, so one can acclimatize. An important requirement was that the room should invite the visitor to set out on an exciting and intriguing journey through the history of Amsterdam. The result is a ‘cloud of objects’ flying into the museum. Each of these objects refers to one of the following 23 rooms, presenting a cross-section of the collection in 55 stacked showcases. This gives an impression of the immense diversity of the museum collection. Not always beautiful and valuable, but nevertheless objects that bear witness to the past, each one telling one of the many tales about the city.

Multimedia show

The 13-meter long animation on the side wall of the room brings not only the city but also this room and the objects to life. This multimedia presentation was created from fragments of paintings that hang elsewhere in the museum. It prepares the visitor for his/her experience of the history of Amsterdam. Lots of attention is given to the interactive touchscreens by which the visitor can stroll through the digital cloud of objects to inform oneself about all the individual objects. At the end of the room, the digital, chronological growth map of the city is projected at the back-side. This now gives insight into the development and expansion of the city of Amsterdam from 1100 to the present day.
