  • A great art museum in a wonderful building. It’s not large and the fee to get in is high but for us it was worth it to see the star attraction – Vermeer’s The Girl With The Pearl Earring. Several...

  • A must see art museum if you visit The Hague, some of the best pieces include Johannes Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" and Rembrandt's "The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp".

  • Absolutely stunning interior - the building & design of the rooms is art in itself, with hand carved & custom details in every corner of every room. The art itself if beautifully laid out & striking - especially the pieces from the mid to late-1500's which are so rich in colour. It's also such a treat to see some of Vermeer & Rembrandt's most famous pieces in person!
  • Wonderful museum. Perfect size to enjoy each piece as it is a smaller size compared to other well known museums. Audi guide was a great companion although the English was different to the Dutch. The Dutch guide provided a highlight tour whereas English did not. Gift shop is also well worth the visit at the end.
