i m a big lover of art galleries and was very keen to see the refurbished Mauritshuis. I was not disappointed. Good amenities such as lockers, loos, shops etc in the new lower ground floor. The house itself was beautifully laid out, great colours in the galleries. Great to see the Girl with a pearl earring, Rembrant, Holbein, and an... More

Now this is what I call a brilliant art museum: small but very well organized and contains excellent Dutch masterpieces particularly Holbein and Rubens and of course, Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring and View of Delft, and Rembrandt’s Anatomy Lesson. We did a daytrip from Amsterdam to visit this museum and it’s really worth the effort. We took a... More

My bias: I dislike camera use in galleries. The Mauritshuis Museum is located in a beautiful building in the historical area of Den Hague. The works of art are set out in a very approachable manner allowing visitors to get up close and really appreciate each work. Audio guides are available and may be programmed in a variety of ways....

The museum has been recently renovated and because of which it is currently attracting a lot of enthusiastic art lovers to the place. Be sure to make it to the place if you love Dutch artists as the place has a good amount of Rembrandts and vermeers at the place although at present it’s “The Girl” that is impressing its... More

This collection of works by the Masters is perfectly presented. We rented audioguides which worked flawlessly (not always the case). However they offer a free audio download to your smartphone and tell you that before you pay. The guides provide both background on the paintings and the artists. I really enjoyed learning about the collaborative efforts on some works by... More

After hearing about the renovation we simply had to visit and what a great job they've done, definitely worth a visit. The Vermeer painting of the Girl with the Pearl Earring is not actually one of my favourites but the Rembrandt painting The Anatomy Less of Dr Tulp is so worth seeing. Staff were very helpful and welcoming.

The Mauritshuis is not only renovated but renewed. A new, very modern and pretty stunning entrance in a large and light basement, with a good museum shop. Entering the actual Mauritshuis is stepping back in time, but now as it could have been centuries ago: fresh paint, new textiles on the wall and the paintings hung less cramped than before.... More
