  • One of my favorite museums in the Netherlands. Located in a small city palace next to the prime minister office. The collection is considered one of the best of Dutch masters. A treat to visit. 
  • Great collection of the Old Dutch Masters. A must do in the city and fully worth the price (14 euro). 
  • 期待已久的博物館之行,不僅館藏豐富,其中戴著珍珠耳環的少女更是美啊!博物館的服務也很好,使用手機還有免費的導覽供查詢,不虛此行。

  • 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.
