Dutch and Flemish masters

Over two hundred masterpieces by Dutch and Flemish masters are on permanent display in the intimate rooms of the former home of Johan Maurits, Count of Nassau-Siegen. Jan Steen households, Van Ruisdael landscapes, flower still lifes and Rubens and Frans Hals portraits provide a rich and varied illustration of seventeenth-century painting.

In addition to the permanent collection, the Mauritshuis organises original temporary exhibitions in the exhibition space in the Royal Dutch Shell Wing. The museum offers a diverse programme that invites visitors to take a close look at the paintings on view: from a free Multimedia Tour to guided tours, from lectures to workshops. Visitors are welcome in the Brasserie for a coffee and can shop at the Museum Shop.

Prince William V Gallery

A ticket to the Mauritshuis includes entry to the Prince William V Gallery. The Prince William V Gallery is The Hague's hidden gem. It was the first publicly accessible art collection in the Netherlands. Prince William V of Oranje-Nassau had the room built in 1774 to exhibit his impressive collection of paintings. The walls are completely filled in order to clearly show the wealth of his collection.
