The Mauritshuis is home to the very best of Dutch Golden Age painting. The compact, yet world-renowned collection, is situated in the heart of The Hague, right next to the government centre. Masterpieces such as Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp by Rembrandt, The Goldfinch by Fabritius and The Bull by Potter are on permanent display in the intimate rooms of this seventeenth-century monument.

This is a delightful old house converted into an art gallery. It has a fantastic collection of Old Masters, all first class standard. Two Vermeer's, one is Girl with a Pearl Earring, the other his famous view of Delft. There are some excellent Rembrandts well. A highlight of our visit to the Hague.

The Mauritshuis Museum is a beautiful museum of incredible art. Known as the home of the Girl With A Pearl Earing, the museum features many great works. Rembrandt's Anatomy Lesson, Vermeer's View of Delft and others are housed here. Great place to spend a couple of hours. If you plan on spending time touring museums in The Netherlands, invest in...

We visited the Mauritshuis Museum in The Hague at the end of June and discovered that that since we were last there the splendid collection of art can now be seen in a thoughtfully renovated building with a new wing for exhibits that supplement the permanent collection. The current display uses filmed segments to present a fascinating examination of work... More

Every single work just takes the breath away. If you are in the medical, anatomy or pathology fields, go see The Anatomy Lesson. Put it on your bucket list. Now. You will love the rest of the collection too.

The Mauritshuis is a beautiful building, and its art collection is delightful. As well as some paintings by well-known artists, there are many by lesser-known artists, who are nonetheless brilliant. My favourite of these was the charming "Old woman with boy and candles". The uppermost floor is devoted to the restoration of paintings, in which a series of large-screen televised... More

Beautiful building. Some real masterpieces. A must when you visit The Hague. Tip : download the app before you visit and you get free earphones . Or use their audio guide for €3.50 . It is worth it to listen to all the info about the painting. You will be surprised, specially the story about the cow!!??

Much smaller than i anticipated even though i had been warned by previous reviews it wasn't a huge gallery. It was a pleasant surprise that they actually had three Vermeers (one more than i was expecting), so a tenth of his known paintings. There was also several Rembrandts and some Flemish Primitives. There were some new names to me too,... More

Mauritshuis has a great collection of artwork from Vermeer's Girl with a Peark Earring to different works of Rembrandt. I did not have much knowledge of many of the other artists, but it was still very interesting seeing the other paintings. There is a lot of history in the works at display and Mauritshuis is well worth a visit if... More

For art lovers, not to be missed while in Den Haag. Several famous paintings, of course, but much more. The architecture is worth seeing, too. Well located museum.
