The Mauritshuis Museum

An empty Mauritshuis

Last October I had the chance to take pictures in an empty Mauritshuis, before the opening hours. Ten people and a wonderful museum. It was such an incredible experience.
Could you imagine walking alone around those amazing dutch paintings? I’m talking about masterpieces such as Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring and The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp by Rembrandt.

The Museum, located in the center of The Hague, reopened in 2014 after a meticulous renovation. The main change is that it has doubled its surface by adding an extra building to the museum. 
Today the building houses the top museum for 17th and 18th-century art. Its collection includes some 800 works by a variety of artists.

You should consider visiting the Maurithuis if you didn’t have the occasion yet.
I leave you the museum link, in case you want to read everything you need to know, and some images I took that day.
