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.
