Mauritshuis, The Hague

The Mauritshuis is home to the Best of Dutch painting from the Golden Age. The compact, yet world-renowned collection, is situated in the heart of The Hague, right next to the government centre. 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 are on permanent display in the intimate rooms of this seventeenth-century monument.

More than two hundred top works from Dutch and Flemish masters are on display in the historic yet intimate interior, with its silken wall covering, sparkling chandeliers and monumental painted ceilings. Genre paintings by Jan Steen, landscapes by Jacob van Ruisdael, still lifes by Adriaen Coorte and portraits by Rubens offer a rich and varied representation of the best of seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish painting.

The Mauritshuis offers a varied programme of exhibitions in the Royal Dutch Shell Wing, connected to the historic building by a light-filled underground foyer, which also houses a brasserie and a well-stocked museum shop, the Royal Dutch Shell wing, built in Art Deco style, also houses the Art Workshop (for education), an auditorium, library and several rooms available for hire.
