We gladly open our doors to film and photography professionals who wish to make productions that bring stories of the Mauritshuis to life. 

Guidelines for visitors

In the Mauritshuis you're free to take pictures. We actually encourage it! How great is it that you want to remember your visit and share what you thought of it? Please tag us on Instagram, Facebook or TikTok.  

So that we can enjoy our art for centuries and for the safety it, we do ask that you turn off the flash and leave a tripod or selfie stick at home.
