Activities International Friends

Special trips, interesting lectures, in-depth guided tours and a wonderful range of educational activities - the Mauritshuis organises a lively international programme specially created for our International Friends group.

Over the past years the International Friends of the Mauritshuis have enjoyed recreating flower still-lives, in-depth tours of specially selected paintings in the Mauritshuis and the Prince William V Gallery, visited other cultural landmarks in The Hague and its surroundings such as the Residence of the British Ambassador and the Huygens Museum in Voorburg, and organised popular in-house family workshops and learning events.

You can join and find more about our International Friends group on our website.
