No, far from being a Louvre or Rijksmuseum, this little gem you can easily do in 1-2 hours, depending on how much you want to go into detail. You work yourself up to the highlight - the Girl with the Pearl Earring - where you will dwell for a few moments, or a few more moments, wondering if it could... More

it is a small but beautiful museum (at a top location in the Hague, next to the governement seat) with top selection of Dutch classic art. Including the famous ´girl with the pearl Earring´. Check if it is open/for a while closed for renovation).

this Museum is closed now,but a lot of masterpieces are exhibited in the Gemeende Museum in Haag.Go there! It is a great exposition. You will not find The Girl With The Pearl (it´s now in USA ), but there is also another great exposition of Mondrian 1912-14.

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

Temporarily housed in the municipal museum, this collection of paintings is really extraordinary. Not to be missed.

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
