Investigation results

None of the objects in this museum have problematic provenance.

Result of this investigation

Investigators checked the collections that were assembled in 1994 when Limburg Museum was founded, namely those of the former Goltzius Museum and Limburg Folklore Centre. Investigators also checked acquisitions made by Limburg Museum itself: these were mainly items relating to regional and cultural history, as well as art and archaeological objects. The museum reports that no objects with problematic provenance were found in these collections: investigators found no indication of any such problem in the inventory books and archived correspondence in the collection documentation.
