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 visit The Hague, you should not miss this compact museum filled with (mostly) Dutch masterpieces. Do not expect modern art. This collection is all about the abundance of Dutch nasterpainters of the Golden Age.

This museum is smaller than I anticipated. It is only two floors of portraits. However like several other newer museums, the building itself is worth seeing as well as the famous works inside. I would recommend visiting if in The Hague!

The visit was a present from my husband for my birthday so that I could tick one of bucket list things to do. Namely to view the famous Johannes Vermeer painting "Girl with a Pearl Earring." The actual painting is so much better than seeing a representation in a book or post card. The colours are vibrant and I felt... More

The Mauritshuis is truly a wonderful art museum. It is devoted to the Dutch Golden Age and features paintings from Jan Steen, Paulus Potter, Rembrandt and Johannes Vermeer -among many other fantastic painters. I cannot emphasize enough that when you are in The Hague, this is the place to visit for a few hours. Just walk through (and don't forget... More

The museum is much more than you see from The street. It is even special desinging trick. The building inside seems to be much much bigger. The collection of paintings is really huge, everyone should those masterpieces in their lives at least one time. Price is really nice especially when you watch THESE paintings.

A beautiful exhibition of beautiful Old Dutch painters like Jan Steen and Vermeer. This was a special exhibition of paintings in the possession of the British Royal family. But there is much more to see.

The entrance costs 14€ (if you plan to visit more than 5 museums in The Netherlands, search for the museumkaart) + 3,50€ for the audio tour (you can also download it to your cell phone for free), but it is worth its money. For the visit you should estimate more than 2 hours (maybe 3 if you want to listen... More

I really like everything about this place. It's a beautiful building with a great modern entrance below street level. It's small enough to make it a quick visit (let's say an hour) but interesting enough to stay much longer than that! The collection is truly a fantastic representation of the 'golden century' in The Netherlands with the likes of Rembrandt,... More
