Limited, though excellent collection of flemish and dutch paintings. The audioguide offers great thematic tours with great information (you can download it for free on your smartphone). The house itself is beautifully integrated with the modern infrastructure, though it remains small and the rooms are often crowded. We had a museumcard which allowed us to go in for free, but...

This museum is just the right size. A 2-3 hour visit is sufficient and the ability to get "Up close and personal" with the art is unique. Not too crowded and a good price. Their free app is a perfect complement and saves on renting headsets.

The "new" Mauritshuis is brilliant. It contains a superb and well presented collection of Dutch old masters, and is a must see if you visit The Hague. But make sure you get there early in the day. Its a small building, and even on a cold and snowy day afternoon the end of December there was a queue awaiting entry.... More

This museum has an excellent location and lay-out, not to mention the art collection! It feels like you're walking through a very grand home and just happen to pass some of the most famous works of art! Some museums can feel tiresome but this is just the right length, so you can enjoy the art without growing bored or antsy.... More

This museum has always had the wow factor, but has been transformed under the direction of Emily Gordenker and her team. The modern entrance, the shop and restaurant are attached but separate from the 'house', maximising the space available for the fabulous collection of Dutch 17c art which is beautifully lit and displayed

The building was magnificent inside and out. A trip there to see the girl in the pearl earring was worth the trip alone.

This small yet perfect art museum is a must see. It has three floors full of fantactic Dutch paintings that are sure to please any lover of art. Unlike many of the larger museums, the Mauritshuis's size and it layout makes it a perfect gallery that can be easily covered in an afternoon. The museum has free WIFI and a... More

We took a day trip from Amsterdam to come specifially for this museum. It is beautifully laid out in an old mansion with the decor somewhat original. There is a very fine selection of the Dutch masters and it is easy to navigate. You can get really close to these famouse pieces without a huge crowd. A must for art... More
