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.

The Mauritshaus is such a gem of a gallery - nearly every exhibit is a masterpiece. We visited to see the Girl with a Pearl Earring and the Goldfinch - the highlights of our visit to The Hague. But even without these fabulous pieces, the Mauritshaus would have been worth the trip. It's a small gallery, only 16 rooms within... More

More personal and somehow manageable than big galleries. I love the Flemish and Golden Age pictures. Photography is not allowed thank goodness. No fighting past waving iphones and obstructive idiots too busy viewing their efforts to see the pictures.

Great museum. The Frick exhibition was nice. The museum was wonderful. Amazing! The girl with the Pearl earring made it all worthwhile!

Can be done in an hour or 3. Its not large at all so you don't feel like you are in there forever. Home to the Dutch Masters. Must see in The Hague

We visited this gallery because my daughter wanted to see the girl with the pearl earring and my husband wasn't particularly interested as he doesn't care much for art. However, the quality and sheer numbers of fantastic paintings here, even won him over in the end. I would recommend this museum to anyone, particularly as they are happy for visitors... More

We have visited Mauritshuis on every occasion we are in Holland. It has always impressed us, and this time it had just been beautifully renovated and is more lovely than ever. The building was created as a mansion is 1640, and it became the home of the royal collection in 1822. We especially love the room which has several paintings... More

This is a stunning building, and has a lovely location. The collection is very interesting, I love the still life paintings and there are many other fantastic art works. Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring is one of the most famous of course, but there are many works by the great masters including Rubens, Rembrandt and Van Dyck When we... More
