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.

Beautiful collection in a beautiful building

All the famous Dutch masters are here and very tastefully displayed. We came later in the day about two hours before closing and it wasn't crowded. We loved it.

An excellent museum, with Rembrandt self-portraits, some of Vermeer's best-known paintings like Girl with a Pearl Earring and A View of Delft. Well worth a visit. It also has a very nice cafe.

Beautiful famous paintings are set in various rooms on three floors up large staircases. The building itself is beautiful, just outside the parliament buildings and though a gate. You gain access to a separate wing where temporary exhibits are from the lobby. Admission covers both.

Don't be put off by the outside of the museum - I didn't think the smart new entrance was easy to find. Go past the 'guard' at the entrance gates and down the steps on the left through the glass walls into a large, modern ticket selling area, cloakroom and shop then up a few steps into a magical old...

Our visit to Mauritshuis Museum was a highlight of my time in The Netherlands, I was so looking forward to seeing Vermeer's "Girl with the pearl earring" as well as all the other Dutch and Flemish Masters on show. There are over two hundred paintings housed in this stunning 17th century building overlooking the Hofvijver (Court Pond). The museum is... More

So cool here. The girl with the pearl earring was there and the goldfinch... who could ask for more?

The gallery opened at 10am and is about a 10 minute walk from the Central Train Station, it houses various famous paintings in about 16 rooms, including works by Rembrant, and icon works such as the "girl with the pearl earring". Entrance fee is 14 Euros for individuals which did seem a little pricey; however groups of 14 could get... More

After renovation this museum is a real treat. You can get an audio guide - very good - and you can follow 3 suggested tours or call the individual paintings by number. Vermeer's most famous paintings are to be seen and a few Rembrandts, in excellent setting. Highly recommended.

Don't wait for the proverbial rainy Saturday afternoon like we did to visit this museum - it is worth a visit any time you are in The Hague (and it is likely to be more crowded on a rainy day). The result of the renovation of this museum is admirable. The entire building breathes warmth and hospitality. For those who... More
