The first Gigapixel Museum in the world
As well as being able to visit the Mauritshuis in person, you can also experience it in a lifelike virtual environment. We are the first museum in the world to have been fully digitised in gigapixel format
By bringing this together with the Maurithuis’s existing Second Canvas app, the wonderful stories behind the paintings are also revealed and you can zoom in on the brushstrokes. No fewer than 36 masterpieces, including all the Vermeers, four Rembrandts, three Jan Steens, Fabritius’s Goldfinch and The Bull by Paulus Potter, can all be enjoyed in exquisite detail.
The virtual museum can be visited by clicking the image above, or in the Second Canvas app of the Mauritshuis, available in the AppStore or Google Play.
