Mauritshuis is definitely my favourite museum. Though the museum itself is quite small, you can walk through it in 1-2 hours, it definitely has a grandeur, class, allure, charm and style that no other museum has. Since the recent renovations they have a marvelous new hall to welcome visitors. The museum in itself is worth a visit; a beautiful monumental... More

It's OK.The Girl with the Pearl Earring is good and the building is human sized. It is a little tedious after a while looking at pictures that are of a type and are mainly the displaying of status. There is a small picture called Drunken Peasants at the Inn which I loved. A pleasant afternoon but one I left feeling... More

There are a lot of reviews describing gems and pearls of Mauritshuis' Museum collection. It is really "the must visit destination for art lovers". You will be surprised and delighted and privileged to enjoy art of Vermeer, Rembrandts and other dutch masters presented in this palace. Don't miss the opportunity to visit an exhibition on a top floor of the... More

We ran from the train to the museum to find the pearl. What I didn't expect was the floor of Rembrandt paintings. This small museum was filled with fascinating paintings showing how art was moving away from biblical motifs and artists began painting landscapes and the people and tidbits about life in 16th century. A new point of view arrives... More

A lot of Rembrandt and the famous girl with the pearl is there! The museum was really busy so I would suggest going early instead of late afternoon!

This museum might be small but it houses all the Dutch masters. So, if you are interested in swing some of the Dutch matsre pieces, then this place is a must see for you. I spend about 45 minutes marveling at some of the great paintings

Great small museum housing Dutch masterpieces. Vermeer, Rembrandt, etc. Easy to visit galleries allow you to look up close at some amazing masterpieces. The Musuem is quite small and almost every painting is a masterpiece. Highly recommended

This is the place for a concentrated hit of the Dutch Masters. The newly renovated mansion makes a gracious setting for this high quality collection. Well organized and greatly enhanced by the audio guide available as an app. Of course there are crowds, come early on a weekday to avoid the worst of this. Well worth a sidetrip to The... More

If you like the Dutch masters, then you must visit this museum. However, be prepared to brave the crowds. I just tried to block them out by concentrating on the audio guide (downloadable for free on your smartphone if you have one, and available for EUR 3,5 if you don't or didn't take it with you). However, that didn't always... More
