Step into the life of William the Silent and view paintings from the Dutch Golden Age at Museum Prinsenhof Delft. The 16th-century Dutch Prince of Orange made his home at the complex, originally built as a monastery in the Middle Ages. Today the urban palace houses a municipal museum displaying a collection of Dutch Golden Age paintings. Tour the museum with a guide or headset, and view exhibits on Delftware imitation porcelain, famous Delft residents, and William the Silent. See where his assassination took place; you'll see the bullet holes still visible in the walls.

A very nice showcase of the life of the founding fathers of the Netherlands! Spread over several rooms, each room tells its own part of the story. The life of Willem and his family is well represented up to the point of his death, and when reading through the different rooms it feels a bit like a TV show: set up/intro, love story/conflict and eventually death. Recommended for anyone that's in Delft!
Very good museum. Friendly staff, interesting and engaging exhibitions. Would recommend. Need about 1.5 hours to go through main exhibitions.
