In addition to a tour through some of the most beautiful state rooms in the Royal Palace, a new exhibition is mounted every year.
The 2017 exhibition
The 2017 exhibition told the story of the Royal Household: the untold story of the servants and employees at the Royal Palace, especially in the years after 1905. Who were they? How did they live? What did they do?
The exhibition shows typical work stations, tools and equipment. This is from "the kitchen". Photo: Liv Osmundsen, the Royal Court.
