A Girl with the Pearl Earring lives here! Really nice place with a selection of Dutch classic art. Been closed for renovation for 2 years...
I was awaiting for my friends to arrive in Amsterdam, and instead for shopping and drinking coffee i took the train to Den Haag. Good decision ! :) Is not a big museum but for sure is breathtaking, full of pictures and not to be missed.
The Museum houses a small but charming eclectic collection of paintings. Beware, there can be lines (though nothing like an Amsterdam line for a museum). And my only complaint is that it gets a bit cramped inside. Pictures are hung very closet together, and rooms are small, making it difficult to back up and focus on any one work.
It'd worth time to take one day from your Netherlands trip to visit this Museum in Den Haag, the collection and the way it's organised is so interesting, the audiovideo-guide is the best that I had for the time being. It's not so big so you can see all the collection for one visit and you know I wish to... More
I think I saw some Rembrandt (4 or 5), Vermeer (not much) and Rubens and many other Dutch and Flemmish painters' works. However, 'The girl with the Pearl Earring' was on an exhibition in the US, so could not see it in my both visits in the summer of 2013. The explanations beside the paintings were satisfactory and of course... More
The Mauritshuis is a lovely museum, a beautiful old stately home, conveniently in the middle of the city but please note: it's closed (till mid 2014) due to renovations and extentions. Fortunately you can see all the famous paintings - some Rembrandts, and the girl with the pearl earring amongst others - at the Gemeentemuseum. Another beautiful museum, built by... More
Closed for renovation and the Girl with a Pearl Earring was on tour in Japan. The highlights of the museum were on display at Gemeentemuseum, a 20 minute bus ride from the train station, no pictures allowed, and fairly small. Wait until the renovation is over.
This is one of The Hague's finest art museums (actually THE finest) with Vermeers and Rembrandts. The Mauritshuis itself is also worth seeing as it has a unique position in The hague and, as an earlier reviewer mentioned, is more like a very grand home.
This is my favorite museum in the Netherlands. It is the perfect size with excellent works from all the major Dutch & Flemish artists. Unfortunately it is closed for renovation until sometime in 2014, though the site says the majority of paintings are at the Gementee Museum which is across the street closer to the the main street.
