A house full of stories
From Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring to Rembrandt’s Two African Men and Fabritius’ The Goldfinch – no other building in the Netherlands has so many impressive paintings per square metre as the Mauritshuis.
Our world-famous collection of 17th-century masterpieces is displayed in two unique buildings: in the former home of Count Johan Maurits of Nassau-Siegen, built in 1641, and at the Prince William V Gallery, The Hague’s best kept secret.
* Starting early February 2023, the Girl with a Pearl Earring, Diana and Her Nymphs and View of Delft are on temporary loan to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam for a Vermeer exhibition. The Girl with a Pearl Earring will return to the Mauritshuis on April 1 and the two other paintings will return in June.
