We went (day train trip from Brussels) primarily to see Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring." Were pleasantly surprised with the quantity and variety of other excellent paintings in the collection. You can get very close to most of the paintings. We went mid-morning on...More

Rembrandt, Vermeer, and much more, all in a 17th century "party mansion"..right in town center. A must-see in the Hague (which is a town, BTW- central seat of gov't)

A lovely gallery in a wonderful building with beautiful rooms. Dutch art, so lots of excellent portraits, meticulous still-lifes, and lifeless flowers (just my opinion!). Vemeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring is just beautiful - so worth seeing. Practical stuff - I have a bad...More

I think not. The line to enter the Anne Frank House is long and the travel time to The Hague is just under an hour each way plus a 15 minute walk to Mauritshaus from the train station. Unless you are a traveler who just... More
