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 visited this museum as part of a break from our drive from Amsterdam to Bruges. It is a smaller museum and we were able to see the highlights of the collection in under an hour. Vermeer's "View of Delft" and "Girl with the Pearl Earring" are worth the price of admission, but the rest of the collection is quite... More

I'm not a very arty person, I appreciate art, but wouldn't normally seek out a display. I went to Mauritshuis while visiting friends. It was fascinating, loved that there were pamphlets which highlighted the focus points so that if on tight time you could look at specific works. The art is amazing and I would go back again to spend... More

The Mauritshuis is a regular museum with painings of Vermeer, Rembrandt, Jan Steen and others. When visiting, download the app to your phone or tablet. It gives a good explanation. The most interesting is the separate hall with a seminar in 4 parts on the restoration of Rembrandts painting "Saul and David". Don't miss this

This museum has recently been expanded and renovated. It's been beautifully done and the extension is also a nice building. The extension gives a bit of breathing space to enjoy the wonderful collection better. there is also a nice restaurant which you don't need a ticket for.

A lovely museum with a fine collection or works in a beautiful restored mansion. Of course the Girl with the Pearl Earring is the focus but there are other great works to be seen well laid out and spaced.

Small scale (compared e.g. to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam), but, oh, what an excellent collection of beautiful paintings. Vermeer's The Girl with the Pearl Earring, Fabritius Puttertje (Goldfinch), The Anatomical Lesson of Prof. Tulp - and so on. Wonderful, above expectations!

Recently renovated, beautiful 16th century city palace, tastfully combined with modern architecture. Right next to the 13th century seat of parlement and the office of the prime minister. The collection of paintings is stunning, assembled since early 1800's. The most known painting "Girl with pearl" is just one of the masterpieces. Its comparable with the Frick museum in New York,...

Very nice museum in the historic center of the Hague. If you plan to visit only one museum in the city choose Mauritshuis

Amazing museum! Located in a stately, centuries old mansion, but with a recent, very modern addition, and the walls are covered with masterpieces.

For us the most beautiful museum in the Netherlands and possibly in Europe. Every time you go back you find something new to admire or see an old friend.
