Museum Bredius

Museum Bredius is a hidden gem alongside the Hofvijver. In this 18th-century mansion, you will see much more than simply a glimpse of the interior as it was back then. You will be amazed by works of art by famous artists, including Rembrandt, Jan Steen and Aelbert Cuyp. The collection was assembled by the former director of the Royal Picture Gallery (Mauritshuis) and art aficionado Abraham Bredius (1855-1946). On his death, he left his entire collection of more than 200 paintings to the city of The Hague. Thanks to the efforts of other art lovers, his collection can still be admired to this day.
