  • This is by far the best collection of Dutch Masters I have ever seen. Though much smaller than the Dutch Masters collection at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Mauritshuis has the feeling of a jewel box ...  more »

  • The Mauritshuis in the Hague is just a gem of a Museum. In comparison with other famous museums it might not be so great, but apart from the collection is a beautiful building with of course a very old tradition. In the Mauritshuis are regularly the most beautiful special exhibitions, but forget not because the in-House collection which is beautiful.

  • The building and entrance looks lovely after the renovation they did. Enjoyed the paintings on display. Mauritshuis is mostly known for hosting the Girl with the Pearl Earring, but there are also some great Rembrandts and Hals paintings. Not impressed by the modern painting effect they did on the decorative ceilings of a historic type building. You can store your bags and your coats before entering. The art museum is only a 10 minute walk from the The Hague Central train station.
  • A very great museum with very beautiful magnificant paintings in it. Especially paintings from the golden age of Netherlands. You can download a special APP by your smart phone and then you can get instructions of these paintings in many launguages.
  • If you appreciate the Dutch golden age of art and the Dutch old masters, this is a must-go.. Not too big, but enough to start feeling your feet after a while ;) Top quality collection.
  • Beautiful museum with an outstanding collection of artwork. Small but well worth the visit
  • Must go museum for Dutch painters' lovers. Some of the most famous paintings for Vermeer, Rembrandt and Jan Steen. Definitely recommended for anyone in Den Haag.
