  • Small intimate museum which enable you to get close to the pictures. Museum recommended visiting after 3pm to avoid crowds which we did and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

  • Must visit when in The Hague and not only for Vermeer's Girl with the Pearl Earring. Is housed in one of the prettiest manors of The Hague and houses an impressive collection of Flemish masterpieces. When we visited an exhibition was ongoing on the flower arts of The Netherlands which was also a beauty to see. Tickets are usually available on site if not booked in advance without waiting too long. Recommend setting aside 1.5 - 2 hours for the visit. A tip is to follow the highlights tour on their app.
  • Excellent art museum with just the right amount of pieces. Not too much or too big where you decide to start rushing through. Even the children enjoyed it as they felt like there was enough variety. One of the best art museums we have ever visited!
