Museum Prinsenhof

Willem van Oranje, Delfts Blauw en Meesters in Innovatie

Museum Prinsenhof is a museum at the Saint Agatha Square in Delft. It belongs to the top 100 of the Department for Conservation from 1990.

Museum Prinsenhof Delft has an extensive collection of paintings, pottery and utensils. Much of this stems from the 16th and 17th centuries, the period of great prosperity for Delft and the Netherlands. The collection covers a period of more than five centuries and is very diverse: from Michiel van Mierevelt to Jan Schoonhoven and 17th century textiles and silver to contemporary ceramics.

The three key themes of the museum are: William of Orange, Delftware and Masters in Innovation. Prinsenhof is also the place where William of Orange was assassinated. In one of the walls, the bullet holes are still preserved as a silent witness to this murder.
