You don’t want to miss out on a visit to the Mauritshuis museum in The Hague. It will enthrall you with the best artistic works of the Dutch Golden Age painters of the 17th Century.


You will get the opportunity to feast your eyes on masterpieces like The Bull (Potter), and The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp (Rembrandt), among others. The Mauritshuis is home to more than 200 invaluable paintings by the 17th Century masters. As a homage to these masterpieces, the interior of the museum room is adorned with glittering chandeliers, silk wall coverings, and massive painted ceilings.
