Spinoza lived on Paviljoensgracht in The Hague from 1670-1677. This is where he completed the Ethica. The attic room where he lived and died is not open to visitors.

The Association Het Spinozahuis offers a study room on the ground floor where the post-1800 collection of books are held. The collection includes many editions of the philosopher’s works as well as some 1,000 books on Spinoza. This is also the site of the future biographical museum.

The study room is open to the public on Monday from 14.00-16.00. Admission is free. We regret that the Spinozahuis is not accessible to wheelchairs. There are no tours of the house. For more information please contact: domus@spinozahuis.nl
