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.

Want Rembrandts, Vermeers, Hals, Steen plus more without the crowds of the big galleries, then go here! I have been going to this gallery for years and the place is medium size but well organised and less crowded than most... The Hague is a good place to visit too!

We enjoyed our afternoon wandering the rooms and studying the beautiful art and the beautiful building. The highlights for me were The Girl with the Pearl Earring and The Bull. Reasonable entry fee, especially when you discover your coats and extra bags are checked for free.

Well I came to the city precisely because of some of the art works present in the museum. That says what I think of them, so I'll focus on other aspects. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The museum conditions are great. The building itself is fantastic and deserving of the artworks it holds.

Once you're staying for a sight seeing in The Hague it's a must to visit the Mauritshuis. Paintings of the most important Dutch painters you will find within this museum. Rembrandt, Vermeer, Brueghel etc. you will meet there. So not visiting this site you either don't have any interests in classical paintings or you miss a great part of The... More

Visited here when on a day trip to The Hague in December. I remember hearing about a good art museum here so we decided to check it out. Entrance was a very good price, and the museum itself was fantastic. A really beautiful building filled with incredible art. The museum didn't feel 'elitist', it felt like anyone could visit and...

The Mauritshuis is well set out and crammed with art. It caters really well for visitors with a free cloakroom, a cafe, strong free wifi, and a gift shop. You can also buy audioguides to use while you're there or download their (free) app. The museum itself is modern easy to navigate. I downloaded the app and I thought it... More

The museum had some great masterpieces from Rembrandt and Vermeer and you don't have to stand on tiptoes or elbow your way through to catch a glimpse. The staff was very courteous and welcoming. The building is located on the canal so the view is quiet artistic as well. They are also in the process of beefing up their collection.... More

This is such a wonderful collection in a great setting - never too crowded, nice building, and the audio tour (free to download on your phone) really helped me get a lot more out of the art. The descriptions are interesting and engaging. And of course, this is the place to see Vermeer's Girl with the Pearl Earring. For those... More

The place is pretty tipical and nice to see, culturally talking. Inside there are a lot of nice paintings but the best and the most famous is the girl with the pearl earring and it's just amazing. You can feel a special energy around it. And she seems looking at you from any direction. It's a masterpiece and it's unique.... More
