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.

If you are visiting Amsterdam, make the short, easy, and inexpensive trip to The Hague/Den Haag for so many reasons. One of the best reasons is the Mauritshuis, especially for the permanent collection of Dutch masters. The museum is not nearly as crowded as comparable sites in Amsterdam -- no lines (at last when we visited) and easy to get... More

There is amazing assortment of incredible pieces of art here. So much so that the draw of the famous art works were outshone by many other pieces.

The price can seem a bit steep but it is absolutely worth it. Such a great collection and the ceiling painting is mesmerising. Definite must see if you are in Den Haag!

It was a pleasure to see the girl with the pearl earring. Unfortunately, I didn't learn anything about other interesting artwork as the audio device was not working. It was a waste of time, looking and not able to learn anything.

We were only in Amersterdam for one day but I've wanted to see Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring for years. This museum is SO easy to find and run into. My husband parked on the corner, I ran in and saw all the "must see" items in this small but impressive museum in 20 minutes. It wasn't crowded at... More

The Mauritshuis is a small, but impressive and beautiful building, housing a spectacular collection of Dutch Masters, including the Girl with the Pearl Earring and The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp (which is my favourite). We went there after 15:00, resulting in no crowd, and having a nice and quiet afternoon. At this time of day, you can examine... More
