  • Amazing building, almost eclipses the art. Good selection of mainly Dutch art. A number of Rembrandt's and Vermeer's- Girl with a pearl earring, which is smaller than I imagined but beautiful nevertheless. The Hague was more interesting than I thought it would be. Good selection of shops and eating places.
  • highlight in the Hague. girl with pearl earring famous painting by Vermeer around 1665. masterpiece. nice gallery with many paintings by other famous artists too. much less crowded than galleries in Amsterdam meant more pleasant experience. worth the train trip from Amsterdam.
  • Building is beautiful inside and outside. Easy to navigate. A good collection and sufficient places to sit down. If you plan your visit well, there won't be any problem with paintings being crowded - not even the Girl with a Pearl Earring. If you download the free Mauritshuis app you will have a really handy guide.
  • Located in the middle of the Hague, which in itself is beautiful with all it's historical buildings. This is also one of these historical buildings. It has a collection mainly of dutch golden age painters (Rembrandt, Vermeer, Steen, Hals) and a lot of them famous paintings as well (girl with the pearl earring). Some medieval works but no modern art. All in all a real must see.
  • I love it so much! Beautiful interior, wonderful paintings, and I really appreciate the app they have! It gives a very good introduction to the art pieces, great for beginners in art!
