  • Top collection of Dutch masters (and their disciples in France, Germany and other nearby regions) with first-rate paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and others, absolutely a must-see, even if slightly...

  • Exsquisite museum with some of the best examples of The Golden Age of Dutch Painting. Being quite small it always feels like an intimate visit.

  • Beautiful gallery space with masterpieces abound — Vermeer, Rembrandt, Hals, and many more — all hung well and the gallery space used to perfection. Staff were nice too which is a lovely added bonus. Spent an hour and a half inside but you could easily spend two hours or more. Elevators for access and toilets are available too. Absolutely essential if you are in The Hague.
  • I usually get bored after more than 2 hours in a museum. This one was perfect: marvelous paintings, it is not so big, just 2 floors, not very crowded, it was a delight. We enjoyed it a lot and somehow it is on 1st place when it comes to museums.
