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.

Unique Prince Maurits's Home where the "Girl with the pearl earring" lives

Wonderfully intimate museum! Don't miss it!! If you do, you'll just have to come back to The Hague! Next door to the Dutch Houses of Parliament in the centre.

For all the excellence of the National Gallery, the Louvre or the Met, their sheer scale can sometimes seem overwhelming. This gallery is different in that in a relatively short visit one can savour a collection covering a period of roughly 200 years, principally covering the Dutch Golden Age. It's not just Vermeer, however brilliant his View of Delft or... More

The young woman with the pearl will attract you, but it is only the beginning, because there you will find other authors you might not expect to find

The view of Delf by Vermeer that has been recognized by Balzac as the most beautiful painting in the world is on display, with many other gorgeous paintings mostly from the 17th century. The Mauritshuis palace itself is a gem, and is just the right size for a visit of one our two hours while taking your time. We expected... More

The girl with the pearl earring is the must see painting. The atmosphere of it is historic. Close to the square and parliament. The view of it lit up at night is great

Sometimes the smaller galleries are the best (think of the Frick in NY). This is a brilliant gallery in a delightfully restored building. Many people go just to see Vermeer's 'Girl with the Pearl Ear Ring' in room 15, but his View of Delft on the opposite side of room is breathtaking. And don't overlook the Rembrandts. The museum is...

A very interesting art gallery, in the centre of Den Haag. Most visitors seem to head straight for The Girl with the Pearl Earring, but the gallery has so much more to offer. Many of the paintings are by Dutch artists, some more easily recognizable than others. Definitely worth a visit.

Just a wonderful visit, and empty at 10AM opening. Loved Fabritius' "The Goldfinch", Bosschaert's "Vase of Flowers in a Window", and Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring", as well as the numerous Rembrandt paintings. Such an extraordinary collection, without a crowd, we completely enjoyed our time there.

The Mauritshuis is a grand old palace-like house next to the Dutch parliament-buildings . It offers a collection of Dutch painters, mostly 17th century. Value for money when you want to see Rembrandt, Vermeer, Jan Steen and many other Dutch Masters.
