The Limburg Provincial Archive supports the operation of the provincial administration by managing all documents drawn up or received by the policy bodies and the various administrative services of the provincial administration.

The files not only have an administrative value, but are also culturally and historically important. They illustrate countless facets of the history of the province of Limburg and its municipalities during the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
