The Memory Palace
Many stories are concealed in the National Archives. You can learn about eleven of these stories in the exhibition Het geheugenpaleis (The Memory Palace). You will see unique records, including the oldest map of the province of Noord-Holland, the journals of a colonial adventurer and the autobiography of Johan van Oldenbarnevelt.
Eleven people, from a landscape architect to a singer-songwriter, present a modern-day interpretation of the stories. Their creations show us that archives are a source of inspiration.
