You cannot and may not miss it. The renovation was a big succes with the new underground entrance and the outstanding art collection. Of course it is crowded after the re-opening. You can download the free " Mauritshuis app" on your smartphone and walk in your own tempo along the daily life of some ages ago. Do not miss the... More

Friendly and accessible art gallery that our 2 kids, 12 and 14 managed to enjoy despite our concerns we might need to rush around....the saving grace was the excellent audio tour that they could easily locate the correct picture and hear a short informative take on what the artist and painting had created...all the art here is displayed in a...

We were fortunate to show up in Delft --just a short tram ride away from the Hague) in early July..not long after the reopening of this museum. It also was a rainy, windy day..so perfect for a museum. We paid 14 Euro each, did not book ahead but waited in a short line. Afterwards I saw a machine, so probably... More

The newly renovated Mauritshuis is definitely worth a visit. Go early right after opening, the line outside may get rather long during mid day hours. Don't miss the upstairs stars of the collection, the Vermeers, the Rembrandts, the Ruysdaels, etc. But also the rest of the collection is worth seeing. Nice new addtion with special exhibits, now showing an exhibit... More

This museum just reopened after refurbishments. It is rather small in relation to the competition, but all the works shown are of outstanding quality.

The building carries the spirit of that time the prince lived there. The collection is simply the best I've seen in the Netherlands. Simply beautiful.

The famous Girl with a Pearl Earring hangs in this very lovely, small museum. This is a real gem of a museum, well worth the €15 entrance fee. A must see if you're in the vicinity.

The recently renovated, extended and refurbished Mauritshuis reopened its doors in the early days of July. It is a wonderfully restaured building with a stunning collection of 16/17th century paintings. Rembrandt, Vermeer, Jan Steen, Paulus Potter, etc.etc., are present with the best they have made in those days. The Mauritshuis is worth a visit for 2-3 hours, unless you want... More

The old masters collection is amazing and the number of Rembrandt paintings is unique for such a (small) museum. I must admit that my expectations were high after the 30 million euro (!)renovation. Yes, there's a new entrance and a larger reception area. More floors for exhibitions and private parties but the floors with the permanent collection are (look) exactly... More

The newly opened Museum (it had been open 2 weeks when I visited) is light and airy to enter, then the more traditional form of Art Gallery takes over on the upper floors. The hanging is very good. One can get to see very clearly. It was crowded as this was only the second weekend since reopening, but the transition... More
