Museum Prinsenhof Delft is going to be renovated into an attractive and contemporary museum with enhancement of its monumental character. The museum will have a new entrance and become more accessible. It opens up to the outside, allowing daylight in and views of the monument and the city. The national monumental complex will also be preserved and given a high-quality museum environment.
Museum Prinsenhof Delft displays the history of the Netherlands through three themes that are inextricably linked to Delft: William of Orange, Delft Blue and the Delft Masters. One of the important events in Dutch history - the assassination of William of Orange - took place here. Besides the 'bullet holes', works by important painters such as Johannes Vermeer are on display and the book chest in which Hugo de Groot escaped from Slot Loevestein 400 years ago is also part of the collection. The complex housing the museum is listed in the top 100 most important monuments in the Netherlands.
