Mauritshuis, The Hague: 34 reviews and 66 photos
In the centre of The Hague, directly adjacent to the government buildings on the Hofvijver, the mansion of Johan Maurits, arose in about 1640. The strictly classical building was designed and built by Jacob van Campen and Pieter Post, the two most important Dutch architects of their time. Since 1822, the intimate `Mauritshuis' has housed the Royal Cabinet of Paintings, one of the most famous collections in the world.
The core of the collection consists of masterpieces from the Dutch Golden Age, including paintings by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Steen and Frans Hals. But there is much more to see.
