Even though they don't have any original Vermeers, this place is extremely interesting as you hardly ever can see and compare all the works done by one artist. They give you an audio guide that describes the paintings. On the top floor, you learn about...More

Learn the essentials of Johannes Vermeer's life and career. Learn as well the essentials of his unique paintings. Learn how he created the inimitable light in his paintings.

This is a very good little museum which explains Vermeer’s life and his town. It is best to visit this museum before you then go on to the Hague to see his paintings at the Maritshau" The audio guide is free with the entrance fee.

Even though there are no original paintings on display, it was great to see his entire works displayed in reproductions, life size, all next to each other and in chronological order. Good video introduction too.
