Our paintings may be hundreds of years old, but they are still relevant today, touching upon subjects that still concern us now: love, inequality, power, beauty. Our online stories explore the best tales behind the collection, with input from experts at the Mauritshuis and elsewhere. Choose a subject and prepare to be amazed.
Our online museum is always open, so if you fancy it you can wander around the Mauritshuis at night. We are the first museum in the world to have digitised our collection in gigapixel format (over a hundred times bigger than the images you take with your smartphone). This allows you to zoom in to our paintings so closely that you can even see the brushstrokes: an entirely new way of looking at art.
Our Rembrandt Reality app uses augmented reality to allow you to look over Dr Tulp’s shoulder in The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp. And we have joined forces with museums all over the world to develop the Vermeer museum, where you can see all of Vermeer’s paintings in one place.
