Museum Het Prinsenhof, Delft Overview

A museum displaying the history of Netherlands around the time of William of Orange, and also home to a brilliant collection of Dutch Golden Age paintings.

A historic urban palace, built during the middle ages, the Prinsenhof is actually the place where William of Orange was murdered in 1584. At the main stairs, where the assassination took place, the bullet holes can still be seen. William of Orange was a ruler well ahead of his time, and his liberal ideas were not digested well, leading to his assassination by the Spanish. The museum is set up just like it would've been back in the day, with exquisite pieces of Delftware all over. There are also collections of fabulous paintings by artists like Hugo de Groot and Johannes Vermeer, and many others from the Golden Age of the Dutch. A very educational and captivating tour of Dutch history, the museum is a popular tourist attraction.
