Current and future exhibitions

Exhibitions Travel

Last updated: 16 June 2020

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 because of Covid-19 it isn’t easy at the moment to travel. Many museums might be closed, some have reopened or will soon reopen their doors, but with restrictions. Ticket buying online at the moment is essential. And exhibitions have been postponed, or started later than planned.
