Are you a wheelchair user, do you have difficulty walking or do you have a sensory impairment? We always take this into account. Supervisors/attendants enjoy free entry. Take a look at some of the other things we do to make your visit as smooth and as pleasant as possible.

We also provide seating arrangements in all the rooms. We also have special rest-rooms for wheelchair users. You will find these facilities behind the cloakroom in our foyer.

Visitors with electric wheelchairs

Do you use an electric wheelchair? Fortunately, this is no problem in most areas of the Mauritshuis. However, if your electric wheelchair is wider than 78 cm or longer than 150 cm, it will not fit into the elevator in the historical part of the museum. This is where the permanent collection is located. You can however reserve a suitable wheelchair. To do so, please call us at 070 302 3456 or send an email to mail@mauritshuis.nl.

Group visit with wheelchairs

Would you like to visit us with a group in which several people use a wheelchair or have walking difficulties? If so, please contact us (070 302 3456 or send an email to mail@mauritshuis.nl). We will make staff available to assist wherever necessary.

Supervisors and Assistance Dogs

All Supervisors/attendants enjoy free entry. Simply call us at 070-302 3456 or send an email to mail@mauritshuis.nl.

Assistance dogs are allowed in the Mauritshuis.

A more tranquil visit

Would you rather avoid the crowds? If so, your best option for a visit to the Mauritshuis is after 15.00 hours or on Mondays. For more detailed information about quiet times, please contact us (+31 (0) 70 302 3456 or send an email to mail@mauritshuis.nl).

It’s usually a good idea to prepare your visit extra carefully in advance. For example, if you bring a visitor with an autism spectrum disorder. Download our preparation document for this.

Transcribed Texts

During your visit, you will be able to find more detailed information about the works of art in our Mauritshuis app. The information is available in text, video and audio formats. The app also enables you to convert all audio clips into written text.

Guided tours for people with dementia and their supervisors/attendants

We produced ‘Unforgettable Mauritshuis’ especially for people with dementia and their supervisors/attendants. We offer these unique tours on a monthly basis in the form of walk-in tours, which can also be organised for groups. Please make your reservation via onvergetelijk@mauritshuis.nl.

Practising the Dutch language

Practising the Dutch language through the paintings in the Mauritshuis is a great way to add colour to your vocabulary. This is exactly what happens on the NT2 tours. You can explore the most beautiful works with your tour guide and discover what it was like to live in the Netherlands in the 17th century.

You will practice the Dutch language while exploring, and talking and learning about topics such as clothing, family and food from then to now. Please book your NT2 tour via mail@mauritshuis.nl.
