Full description

Indulge the art-lover in you at the Mauritshuis, home to the best of Dutch painting from the Golden Age. Explore one of the most iconic buildings in the Hague, located next to the Parliament. Look out of its windows for a view of the pond.  Discover the art museum's compact, yet world-renowned collection. See more than 200 masterpieces such as Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring", "The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp" by Rembrandt, "The Goldfinch" by Fabritius, and "The Bull" by Potter on permanent display.

Appreciate the collection's rich variety, with genre paintings by Jan Steen, landscapes by Jacob van Ruisdael, still lifes by Adriaen Coorte, and portraits by Rubens. Admire the 17th-century monument's historic yet intimate interior, with its silken wall coverings, sparkling chandeliers, and monumental painted ceilings.

Stay as long as you wish and visit the museum at your own pace. Allow around 1.5 hours, which is the average visit duration. Visit the restaurant and coffee shop, purchase some souvenirs, or visit the temporary exhibition.

The current Facelifts & Make-overs exhibition tells the story of paintings that have been treated in the Mauritshuis over the past 25 years.

What do you do if a painting is damaged by woodworm? Why was something added to a painting by Frans Hals for no apparent reason? And what dilemma does a conservator face if an extra figure suddenly reappears in a picture?

Learn all about making the lower layers of paintings visible (sometimes revealing a completely different composition underneath) and the development of ‘craquelure’ (those fine cracks in the paint of old paintings).

Find out how ‘dendrochronology’ (a technique for dating wood by studying the annual growth rings in tree trunks).

This is a small museum in a beautiful mansion. The paintings are of the highest quality - Vermeer's "Girl With a Pearl Earring," Rembrandt's stunning final self portrait, Fabritius' "The Goldfinch," along with Rubens, Van Dyck, and greatest masters of still life. More masterpiece's per square foot than any other museum. Just gorgeous.

From the outside, the great villa is very inviting. In the art gallery you can also find out who used to live in this house with a portrait. The famous picture with the girl and the pearl earring can be seen up close. You have the opportunity to marvel at the pictures and the brushwork without a barrier or similar. There is also a small seating area in almost every room. Watch out! Ask at the information desk how to get to the audio guide. Forgot to ask and then saw that there is often a small audio symbol next to the pictures and their description (name, year and a small explanation of the picture). Otherwise, all the information about the picture is next to it. There are also pictures on the ceiling!

Direkt über das Museum habe ich keine Tickets bekommen aber über getyourgides. Alles lief reibungslos ab. In dem Museum keine Maskenpflicht, Halleluja. Sehr nettes Personal, sehr hilfsbereit. Das Audioguide geht über Smartphone, also Kopfhörermitnehmen. Es ist nicht alles auf deutsch, aber lieber Qualität als Quantität. Bin aus dem Mauritshuis mit einer weiteren Bewusstseinserweiterung rausgekommen.
