Service rates as of the 1st of March 2012
As a result of governmental budget cuts the RKD is forced to increase the rates for some of its services. As of the 1st of March 2012 the current basic 30 minute free research service will no longer be available. Specific queries regarding art history or the evaluation of art works will be processed at the examination rate of € 100.00 per hour (including VAT).
Furthermore, a rate of € 50.00 per hour (including VAT) will be charged for searching information and documentation in the collections. A separate rate will be charged for searching the photo collection for ordering photo(s).
No costs will be charged for providing brief factual reference information on an art work, or for the use of the digital databases. Evaluation sessions are held quarterly and are free of charge. The oral evaluation during these sessions is given in person. Conducting one’s own research in the RKD’s archives is possible with the purchase of a day, week or year pass.
