  • This rather small museum probably had the highest number of great masters art per square foot. The art is very nicely curated and the audio guide is great. It’s a must see for every art lover.  more »
  • 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.
