You will find some of the most famous Paintings from the Dutch Golden Age. Vermeer's Girl with Pearl, Potter's Bull, and so many, many more. But what makes this also a special museum is the beatiful classic and rich building. Note: museum is open till 6pm and on Thursday evenings. Good time to avoid the tourist crowds....

Shortly after attended the opening of the museums. Cars parked outside the town on the P & R site. Easily accessible by tram to the center of town. Regular admission price. Impressive exhibits of our historical artists who let us enjoy their pen and brush off. As expected, there is a serenity in the museum. Visitors stay longer or shorter... More

Persuaded by friends to spend one of the four days of our five day Amsterdam city break in Den Haag to visit the Mauritshuis. So glad we did. Of course the Girl with the Pearl Earring is one of the stars but this collection has representations from all artists of the Golden Age and more. Whether your particular love is... More

I just suggest people download app of the museum. The audio tour and painting explanation is very helpful for understanding golden age Holland. Social changing directly had been reflected through the themes of paintings. It worth to spend at least half day. Wifi works well here.

Only a small museum but it is full of the most beautiful paintings of the Dutch Masters. On the day we visited, it was not overly crowded and so we we had ample oppurtunity to linger and admire each painting. There is a good gift shop and a decent brasserie for refreshments and lunch. Book tickets on line to avoid... More

The museum is not large by any means but has a number of fabulous paintings in it. Even if you're not an art lover it's well worth the entry fee so see the originals. Combine this with a visit to the Binnenhof and you've got yourself a very pleasant worthwhile afternoon!

The museum was the antithesis of our experience at the Van Gogh museum. There were a few folks in each of the rooms, but you had time and opportunity to enjoy hundreds of Dutch masters at your leisure without fighting big crowds. A large and beautiful set of Dutch paintings. At 12 euros, I thought that the museum was well... More

Traditional in the sense that it deals with old master paintings but stunning in the way they are presented and the building they are in. A must see for oil painting lovers.
