The Princessehof Ceramics Museum (in Dutch: Keramiekmuseum Princessehof) is a museum of ceramics in the city of Leeuwarden in the Netherlands. The museum's name comes from one of two buildings in which it is housed: a small palace (hof means ‘royal court’) built in 1693 and later occupied by Marie Louise, dowager Princess of Orange. The other annexed building is the Papinga stins, a former stronghold from the 15th century. The museum buildings are of interest, and so are its collection of tiles, pottery, and ceramic sculpture.On Monday morning, 13 Feb 2023, someone broke into the museum and stole eleven "precious Chinese ceramics". Seven of the pieces were destroyed as the thieves made their escape, but four others are unaccounted for. The heist came less than two weeks after a failed break-in attempt at the museum.
