Discover our two locations

You can visit Huygens Museum on two locations in Voorburg: Hofwijck Estate and the 'Notarishuis'.

Hofwijck Estate

Hofwijck Estate is the creation of Constantijn Huygens (1596-1687). He was a poet, musician, art enthusiast, and secretary to the Princes of Orange.


Located on Herenstraat, one of the oldest buildings in the Huygenskwartier of Voorburg, this venue of the Huygens Museum offers a diverse range of topics, from the Romans and Forum Hadriani to the fascinating life of Princess Marianne.
