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.

So many masterpieces in such a small, beautiful place and surroundings! You can see it in an hour if you're short of time, but you can visit it over and over again and discover something new and beautiful with every visit

This museum must be one of the main ones outside Amsterdam and Rotterdam. It holds a very good number of high profile paintings (Rembrandt's Anatomy Lesson of Nicolaes Tulp and Girl with the Pearl Earring, Vermeer's View of Delft, Fabritius' Goldfinch an many more) and stands in a very impressive building in itself. An absolute delight to wander around.

What a stunning museum to visit. The works are displayed beautifully, one gets a very personal experience, the ceiling paintings are stupendous. You can forgive those who pose for selfies with the Pearl Earring Vermeer as it is truly stunning. The restaurant looks superb, the service for a simple coffee was pretty hopeless - did they really care? It is... More

I was mesmerized by this place. They have an app which can be downloaded before you go and listened to on ones own phone. A well thought out, and wheelchair friendly place. My most favourite piece of art in the world is Rembrandt's "the Two Moors" I never dreamed I would ever see it for real. I did. I was... More

You can't leave The Hague unless you paid this museum a visit. The architects dead a perfect job renovating and expanding the building. You can admire the rich collection in optimal conditions. Don't skip the section explaining in detail the research and restoration of Rembrandt's Saul and David.

If you like Vermeer and Rembrandt, this is a must visit museum. Great classic painting collections. Rent the audio-guide for best experience or, even better, you can download the apps to your smartphone and ask for the earphone if you don't bring it (they gave it to me for free). The securities are like watchdogs though..make sure you don't cross... More

The collection of the painting mostly made in 17th century. The technique itself is very cool, detail and difficult. I don't understand anything about painting world, but I can say that they are very good. Over here you can see the famous Vermeer's painting and please don't use flash when you take any pictures with your camera since it could... More
