My husband loves the Dutch masters, and this museum has many. There was also a Dutch masters contemporary exhibit involving internal body parts that we were not crazy about, but were glad we saw it. The Coco Chanel exhibit was very good, but my favorite was the Delft blue exhibit. There is another special exhibit of Lalique glass that is very good, and there are a few impressionists and other popular artists as well that are well worth a visit.

“We just couldn't leave”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We planned on spending about two hours here, to see the Dutch Masters, but first, we found that that part of the collection (which includes works from the currently closed Mauritshuis Museum) was so fascinating that it took us nearly two hours to get through it (with the free audio guides, which really added to the experience). Then, we kept finding other treasures, from the Hague School (19th century) to a lovely exhibit on Delft china (featuring an amazing doll house), to several short-term exhibits. We finally left, simply because we could no longer stand, after nearly 4 1/2 hours! This is an absolute "must see" for anyone interested in art!

“Always suprising”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

A wonderful afternoon out, great cafe/garden, always new encouters and the wonderful oldies like Mondriaan. Nextdoor is Museon, which is even better for kids, and the Omniversum, so the combination can be a great whole day out! I think the architecture of the building itself is also one of its great assets.

“Mixed bunch”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

We went for the Chanel expo which was decent but lacked surprise I found. Expected more of it. An expo on anatomy makes you think : why? Kinda scary actually, my daughter did not like it, and can't blame her, I looked away from a dead baby as well. The best of the Mauritshuis was great. Entrence price of 14,50 is really on the steep side! The building is by famous architect Berlage but somehow it reminds me more of an old swimming pool, not a fan. All in all, good for The Hague but there is better to be found in other cities.

“exhibits by famous painters”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

There is a different collection each time we go to the Gemeente Museum.... when we were there it featured the works of famous Russian artist Kandinsky and some works from famous impressionists like Monet and some modern artists. There was also an exhibit of Delft blue and white porcelain. While it is smaller than the museums in Amsterdam, still worth visiting including the Escher museum downtown.
