DenRon Collections

HISTORY Welcome in our MUSEUM

DenRon Collections, was conceived in 1996 when we decided to give our collections just a little more edge. We are both great admirers of Her Majesty Queen Wilhelmina of The Netherlands, thus the reason why from that day in 1996 we pledged to collect as much of the memorabilia made for this fascinating monarch. With this website we love to tell you more about it.
