This is a beautiful gallery and a fantastic collection. It is just the right size for a gallery; big enough to feel worth the effort, but not so large that you feel that it is too much to see it all. We went on a Monday afternoon (see tip) and it was not too busy: no queue at all, and... More

The Mauritshuis has long since been one of greatest small musea in the world - intimate, superbly run, beautifully situated next to the Dutch Parliament in the very loveliest corner of The Hague with its stunning collection of paintings. Where else can the Golden Age of the Netherlands with the works or its most famous artists Vermeer, Frans Hals, Van... More

Quality, not so much quantity including the greatest Rembrandt self portrait I have ever seen. The museum itself is a work of art. I went Friday afternoon, early Saturday morning and it was certainly quiet enough to enjoy at your own pace.

Fortunate to see The Girl with the Pearl Earring at this Museum in The Hague. An hour by car from Amsterdam and worth the trip just to see my most favourite painting of all time!! The Hague has more to offer and would love to return.

The Hague is not that friendly to tourists, I couldn't find a shop that sold a map. A reason for visiting it is undoubtedly this remarkable collection of art in a building which has been brilliantly restored. The only blot, I fear, is the new ceiling fresco by a contemporary Dutch artist which is a mess. Otherwise see The Girl... More

I visit the Mauritshuis was not worth the visit. There were far too many people and actually the paintings were not too exciting. The Museum Bredius was much more enjoyable and small compared to Mauritshuis. If being pushed and shoved by tourists is your thing and then the constant photographing of the pictures by people too mean to by a... More

We visited this wonderful building a few of weeks ago, we were interested to see the museum and the wonderful art collection. We arrived in the morning by train from Amsterdam which was an easy journey, arrived at the museum to huge crowds long lines to enter, every room was packed as they did not restrict entry at all. Very... More

The Mauritshuis is a great museum if you want to discover art from the Dutch Golden ages. The museum isn't very big, so come early if you want to avoid the crowd.

We went for the day from Amsterdam to visit this lovely collection in The Hague. It was well worth the trip! The art is beautifully displayed and it is not so crowded as the main collections in Amsterdam, so you get to spend more time with the works in a more intimate setting. The stand out works are the Rembrandts,... More

I'd have liked to give the Mauritshaus a negative score. It warrants four for the collection, and minus 500 for the layout of the paintings and the organisation of the facilities. Positives first. It's a good collection of the Dutch golden age, perhaps even better of the Flemish painters who preceded it. Rembrandt, of course, with the surgeons of Amsterdam... More
