The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, located within a unique 17th-century palace in The Hague, has the highest number of masterpieces per square meter in the Netherlands.
The museum houses a world-famous collection of paintings from the age of Rembrandt and Vermeer.

This exceptional collection offers an amazing overview of Dutch and Flemish paintings from 1400 to 1800, with works by painters such as Vermeer, Rembrandt, Rubens, Jan Steen, Frans Hals, Van Dyck and Adriaen Coorte.

The collection

The collection consists of about 800 paintings, 50 miniatures, 20 sculptures and various drawings and prints. Some of these paintings were once in the possession of Prince Willem V of Orange- Nassau.

Of the thirty Vermeers known to exist, the Mauritshuis has three in its collection: the world famous and widely reproduced Girl with a Pearl Earring, The View of Delft and Diana with the Nymphs. Among the 16 Rembrandts, there are outstanding works such as the Lesson in Anatomy of Dr. Tulp, David and Saul, The Two African men and three masterful self-portraits.

There are also thirteen paintings by Jan Steen, which depict Dutch daily life in the 17th century, as well as the famous painting The Young Bull by Paulus Potter.

Exclusive dinners

Experience exceptional and intimate dinners with a 17th century palace atmosphere and have exclusive access to the museum for the entire evening at the Mauritshuis. There are many rooms that are overflowing with art to choose from. The Prince William V Gallery is the very first museum in the Netherlands that hosts dining events. There's the Golden Room that has a very historical atmosphere or for more of a modern ambiance, there's the Randstad Room and Nassau Room overlooking the historical Binnenhof. 

Mauritshuis gouden zaal

Former palace

The Mauritshuis dates back to the 17th century. Johan Maurits built this house in one of the most fashionable neighbourhoods of The Hague, right next to the Binnenhof, the place where the Dutch parliament meets. One of the features that makes this location so beautiful is the famous pond, the Hofvijver.

The Mauritshuis is one of the most beautiful examples of Dutch classicist architecture and was designed by Dutch architects Jacob van Campen and Pieter Post between 1633 and 1644. Van Campen also designed the Royal Palace and the Rembrandthuis in Amsterdam.

Opening times Mauritshuis

The Mauritshuis is open every day. On Mondays, the museum opens at 13:00 instead of 10:00, Mauritshuis is open until 18.00 every day. A useful tip for those who wish to avoid the busiest time: the Mauritshuis is relatively quiet in the afternoons after 15:00.
