Current and future exhibitions

Last updated: 16 June 2022

This list contains temporarily noble and royal exhibitions all over the world. If you hear about an exhibition that is not yet listed, let me know.

Unfortunately Covid-19 doesn’t make it easy at the moment to travel. Now the restrictions in lots of countries have been lifted, most museums will be open again. It is always the best to check beforehand. Ticket buying online at the moment is still often essential.

  1. Right now I’m wishing I had $100,000.00 to travel throughout Europe to visit all these exhibitions in comfort 🛫🚋🚉🚃🚎🚍🛵🚗 🖼👗👘🏺

      1. Yes! Looking forward to news about your travels! It looks like plenty of palaces and museums are rolling out their best collections to bring back the crowds to admire their exhibits, gardens, enjoy their tours and lodge in their big ticket lodgings. I hope to see videos of their successful seasons this year to whet our appetites for next year. Have fun on your travels!!! 🗺 😊👍

          1. Good luck with your second jab! I had the 1-shot Johnson & Johnson dose in early April and feel great. It helps that I keep a mask with me at all times for wearing to the store or library. You never know who the real barbarians are when your out enjoying the weather and some unvaccinated sneezes your way – oh no! I hope you don’t have any side effects and enjoy a great travel season waving your vaccine card everywhere needed to access the good times ahead!

  2. Was leuk weer van je te horen.
    In Luik is op het station Guillemins een grote tentoonstelling over Napoleon. Waarom daar is me onduidelijk. Maar wad heel aardig gedaan. Veel voorwerpen maar ook verklede etalagepoppen en daar houd ik persoonlijk niet van.
