Mauritshuis looks back on a varied and successful year.
Museum expects to close the year with over 410,000 visitors
The Mauritshuis looks back on a varied and successful year with highlights such as the acquisition of the rare flower still life Vase of Flowers in a Stone Niche by Roelant Savery, the first exhibition of contemporary art Vik Muniz: Verso and the visit to the Mauritshuis by the Duchess of Cambridge for the At Home in Holland exhibition. The museum expects to close the year having welcomed over 410,000 visitors, plus 28,000 to the Prince William V Gallery.
‘The Mauritshuis attracted many first-time visitors this year through a varied and innovative programme, and attendance is significantly higher than before to the refurbishment and expansion of the museum’, says Director Emilie Gordenker. ‘This year we also added two new works to the collection and published an important new collection catalogue. In short, it was a busy and productive year for the Mauritshuis.’
