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.

This museum isn't very big (none in the Hague are) but it houses some excellent works by Dutch painters. With France and Italy being such artistic power players its easy to forget just how talented the Dutch painters were. The Mauritshuis brings that back into perspective. It also houses "The Girl with the Pearl Earring".

This museum has a fine collection of Dutch art. The highlight for us was to see The Girl With the Pearl Earring by Vermeer. It also houses other great pieces of work by artists such as Rembrandt, Holbein, Rubens, Brueghel, and many others. It isn't too large or crowded so you don't feel overwhelmed.

An absolute must during a visit to the Netherlands. The museum is utterly outstanding in all ways. The staff are welcoming and friendly, the technology available to enable everyone to get the best from all the exhibits is the best I've seen at any museum in Western Europe. The special exhibition on the frames of various masterpieces was fascinating. The... More

Really great museum, easily coverable in 1-2hours. Staff was very helpful, and download the free app to get the full benefit. Modern lobby area was beautifully done as well.

A Monday afternoon in mid September and there are few crowds. This art collection is a national treasure and well worth visiting, in fact it's the main thing to visit the ague for. The fourteen euro price is well worth paying better still if you have a national Museumkaart it's free! Such a fantastic collection of amazing artworks in the... More

Excellent art gallery if you are interested in the Dutch Masters. Not too crowded if you go early but it's very popular, so it gets quite busy later on. The cafe is pleasant but a bit expensive if you go for a main meal.

The Girl with the Pearl Earring is a masterpiece like you'll never see (except for the Milkmaid, also a Vermeer). You'll keep asking yourself, "how did he do this?"

The house of Johan Maurits von Nassau-Siegen has become a wonderful museum displaying Dutch art mainly from the so called Golden Age (Xvii century). Nice shop. Do not ask for the audio guide because it does not work properly. Staff says the needed wifi does not work well... This is a bit disappointing when you are in front of one... More

In my opinion, this is an ideal gallery - full of world-class masterpieces and in the same time not too big, so that you're able to devote time to all of them. Works of Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeer, Hals, Steen, Bruegel, Holbein and many other artists (mainly Hollanders from XVI-XVII centuries) are displayed there. It would be great if there were... More
