On the 25th of April, the former Queen Beatrix opened the exhibition "A Golden Legacy", about two exceptional men of the Dutch Golden Age: Constantijn and Christiaan Huygens. XPEX worked on this assignment since 2010 and was responsible for the exhibition concept, loan process, design and construction of the exhibition.
The rediscovery of the tombs of Christiaan and Constantijn Huygens in the Grote Kerk in The Hague was the reason to organize an exhibition on these two great men. The exhibition shows how warmth and ambition converged in this exceptional family, producing free spirits who brought about immense and permanent change. The most striking piece in the exhibition is a full-sized replica of the Oranjezaal in Huis ten Bosch, the residential palace of the former Queen of the Netherlands. Never before the Queen gave permission to make such a replica.
