    Perhaps the best museum in Holland. Must see: the room with the 3 Vermeer's, the rooms with the young and old Rembrandt's and the room with the giant bull by Potters. Download the app, it's a must too

    Did you know that original background color of the Vermeer's girl was green? It faded with time and turned into magnificent black. Besides there are plenty of nice paintings by Rembrandt and Rubens.

    Wow, install the app and do the audio tour! There is so much more to the Dutch masters than meets the eye.

    A somewhat intimate collection, the recent renovation gave Mauritshuis a great foyer to receive tourists. House of Vermeer's "Girl With a Pearl Earring", the painting alone is worth the visit.

    Home to the "Girl with a Pearl Earring" and other brilliant masterpieces by Vermeer and Rembrandt, this intimate art museum is a must-see when you're in The Hague. Closed for renovations from 2/4/12. Read more

    Beautiful little museum. If you have a smartphone, don't forget to download the Mauritshuis app and bring your headphones. Free wifi inside.

    Recently renovated now with large entry area and a nice cafe. Lifts to all floors for those that need them. The art doesn't need advertising.

    Not very big but very interesting. Get the free mobile app in the museum wifi and enjoy the long explanations about the paintings and its importance in the historic context. Museumkaart accepted.

    Believe it our not. I think the ceiling contemporary art work "icarus atlanticus" by Ger Lataster is the best in the whole building.

    Best ilumination at paintings in a museum. No problems with reflexions or the light that comes from the windows.

    Vemeer! It's just impossible to even describe how does it feel to look The Girl with Peal Earring. You must experience it yourself.

    Even with a stroller doable. Although the rooms are not that big (especially when crowded) and you have to ask for the service elevator to get to the 2nd floor.

    Recently reopened after two years' renovation. Despite all the hype around Mauritshuis though, I thought the collection was surprisingly small.

    Just about the right size for a gallery - not too small and not too big either.

    A lot of old crap stuffed together. Beautiful building though. Don't go there if u like modern art. Can be pretty busy also.

    Um pequeno e lindo museu. Em duas horas você é capaz de ver tudo com calma, mesmo com um monte de gente visitando. Se tiver um smartphone não esqueça de baixar gratuitamente o app com o audio-guia.
