Vermeer Centrum Delft
The Vermeer Centrum Delft is the only place in the world where you can admire (reproductions of) all the paintings of Vermeer in their original size. You will find out everything you ever wanted to know about Vermeer’s life, family, and work. Vermeer is especially famous for his stunning depiction of reflected sunlight. In his studio of light, you can discover how the painter was able to master the art of light, and you can perform your own interactive experiments with the camera obscura.
The Vermeer Centrum Delft is a very special building in its own right. During the Golden Age, it was the home of the St. Lucasgilde, a craft guild which Vermeer - like his father before him - joined in 1653. Pay special attention to the facade of the building, which was restored to its original condition in 2006.
