  • A beautiful place to be when one wants to enjoy the master Dutch painters of the 17th century. Mauritshuis is itself a wonderful monument, like a time machine that brings you back to days gone by.
  • Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring is said to exceed the value of Mona Lisa in a sense (guide's sale) I watched a girl with Vermeer's pearl earrings. Even though it's such a world-famous painting You can thoroughly enjoy the splendor of the painting. The appearance of the building is quaint, but the area around the souvenir shop was modern.
  • Amazing museum, Great building next to the government castle from the netherlands. This is almost magical.
  • A must-see!
  • Wonderful museum with an impressive collection. The building itself is worth the visit. You can find famous painters represented here, like Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring), Rembrandt (Anatomy Lesson) or Rubens. The surrounding area is worth some time to explore as well
