For those visiting the Netherlands to see the iconic works of the Dutch Golden Age masters this museum hardly needs any recommendation. The Hague is about 1 hour travel by train from Amsterdam, and the Mauritshuis Gallery is within a walking distance from the Den...More

We had a tour with an excellent docent who showed us not only the highlights, but arranged things so we were able to view the Vermeers, including the Girl with the Pearl Earring without a crowd of people. She really helped us understand and appreciate...More

If you have to pick a museum during your visit to The Hague this one is worth choosing. Not too overwhelming. It is absorb-able even for teenagers. You can see the "Dutch Mona Lisa" in an elegant but human sized palace.

The cultural and historical art in this beautiful museum cannot be ignored. Get an audio tour and spend some quality time on a few works, instead of rushing through and trying to see it all.

This is a nice museum and a must for a vacation trip to den Haag. Use approximately 2 hours for the stay.

Small and charming museum with famous Dutch paintings. We took the train there from Amsterdam just to see the museum and the Peace Palace - half a day trip from Amsterdam.
