Mauritshuis Museum


Please write down your desired entrance time slot

The Mauritshuis is located in the centre of The Hague, the historical and political heart of the Netherlands. A small world-class museum with a formidable collection of Dutch and Flemish paintings from the 17th century; the golden age of this type of art. The museum consists of two striking historical buildings: the Mauritshuis, a city palace on the Plein in The Hague and the Prince William V Gallery at the Buitenhof.

You are never going to find as many impressive paintings per square metre in the Netherlands as here, in the Mauritshuis. Our museum is home to a world-famous collection of 17th century masterpieces with Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring as the ‘icing on the cake’. We put all our love into making sure that everyone is able to enjoy our collection. That is, after all, what we’re here for!

A visit to the Mauritshuis is always special. But that’s not only because we offer more than 250 paintings, the silk wall coverings on which they hang, and the creaky, historical floor under your feet… A visit to the Mauritshuis is so special because it makes you realise that you’re not alone. People were already seeking happiness and a peaceful home in the 17th century.
