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.

We spent one day of our 6 day visit in Amsterdam in The Hague. We took a comfortable train there (50 minutes, 11 euros) and walked about 20 minutes to the Mauritshuis Museum. Being a cold November day, there was no line to get in, and with the exception of a small group of school children, the museum was almost... More

This is one of the best museums I've visited. Almost every painting is a masterpiece without the museum to be too overwhelming (which is a rare combination). They have a good functioning audio guide application so download it beforehand and don't forget your earphones. It can be seen in a couple of hours. A must-do if you are in the... More

View on Delft by Vermeer, The Bull by Potter, The Goldfinch by Fabritius, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp by Rembrandt and The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Vermeer. Need I say more? Tip if you want to visit more museums in the Netherlands: buy a museumjaarkaart and get free entrance to almost every Dutch museum.

This museum/gallery is an essential place to visit, it contains many examples of Dutch paintings over a wide timeline, It includes Vermeers 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' which shouild not be missed. The Building itself is also well worth looking at as you go round. Be aware that it is not that big so can be very busy, but it... More

When we entered, I thought it looks rather small. However, when I saw the collection, it overwhelmed me with the quality of paintings. So many beautiful and well known painters' drawings after drawings. I felt so full of satisfaction by the time I walked out. Beautiful shop had such lovely people too. As well as line up was fantastic. Cafe... More

I have always wanted to see The Girl with a Pearl Earring painting by Vermeer. This gallery has it and one other, the Delft street scene. The gallery is not crowded so I could admire the painting by myself, close up and uninterrupted for ages. Loved it.

If you visit one place in The Hague this is the one. Although the entrance fee is a bit steep, 14 euro per person, it's worth it. Apart from the quality of the Dutch masters, the interior and exterior of the building is beautiful.

The museum consists of 2 parts. What I liked about one is that there are mirrors giving you a bit different perception looking at the same paintings. Second has all well known canvases such as the Girl with a pearl earring (honestly speaking it didn't touched me that much, there are other creatures more expressive than her)

If you are into paintings then this is a must see. All three floors have beautiful century art and Dutch Masters paintings. The collection is quite outstanding. The most famous one is The Girl with the Pearl Earring, but I found most of them equally awesome. The setting also is very good. Its a beautiful spacious building well laid out.
