Great masterpieces of art Apr 28, 2011
If you are visiting the Hague, this is the must-see museum that you can't miss.

They have 3 of Vermer's works (he only left about 30 pieces of artworks in his career), and one of them is "the Girl with the pearl earring" which is also famous for the novel by Tracy Chevalier and it became a movie starring Scarlet Johanson as well.

And also, "The Anatomy Lesson of Nicholaes Tulp" is also exhibited there, which made Rembrandt successful in his career, and also there are many of Rembrandt's works from the early age until his last moment.

The museum itself is not so big, but they exhibit good artworks that represents Netherlands in 17th Century till 18th Century.

The entrance fee was 8euros, but if you have museumkart, you can enter for 2euros.

You also should buy the card if you are visiting many museums in Netherlands. It is valid for one year.

Nice collection and temporarily exhibit Nov 15, 2009
The Mauritshuis in The Hague is now used as a museum; they offer a permanent collection and temporarily exhibits.

The permanent collection consists of works by Vermeer, like the famous Girl with a Pearl Earring, Rembrandt and Jan Steen. The paintings are in the rooms of this old mansion, with very nice wooden floors etc.

The temporarily exhibit we visited was 'Te Paard' (on horseback) with paintings from Philips Wouwermans. This was positioned on the first floor, also in original rooms.

In the heart of the historic center of Den Haag you`ll find Mauritshuis. Here you can see the Girl with Pearl Earring by Vermeer, the master of light. When visiting Mauritshuis you can eksperience Dutch painters such as Vermeer, Rembrandt, Brueghel, Steen, Potter and Hals beside Flemish and German painters. Take the audio travel and listen to the explanation of most of the famuos work. Here you can walk around the hole day and get lost in beatiful paintings.
