Facelifts & Make-overs
Welcome to the hidden world of conservation! The exhibition Facelift & Make-overs shines a light on what usually remains out of sight, namely the conservation of paintings. What is conservation? Why is it necessary? And what secrets do conservators uncover above and below the layers of paint?
Johan Maurits and the Mauritshuis
The Mauritshuis was built by order of Count Johan Maurits van Nassau-Siegen (1604-1679). So it is literally Johan Maurits' house. In a new permanent presentation in one of the rooms of our museum, we will tell, on the basis of eleven works of art, the story about Johan Maurits, Dutch Brazil and the history of the Mauritshuis as a building and museum.
