  • Beautiful museum, with a very special collection. At 5 p.m. on Thursday visited and not total pressure. We had plenty of time to view the entire collection at our convenience, super.

  • Not only the girl with a pearl earring is a mustsee also the ceiling paintings the allegory on the working people and the allegory on the vanity (on the top floor) are worth watching. I've always felt all paintings (of the old masters) feel at home in the beautiful building. The family-do-package is highly recommended!

  • If you want gifts with name the shop of the Museum as the Museum is a must. The Hague with Rotterdam linked to Metro (3, 50eu). Behind the Museum is a beautiful Lake and generally the area around the Museum is gorgeous.
