Mauritshuis

Highly recommended
The Hague's largest museum occupies an elegant residence, and is named after the man who commissioned the building, Count John Maurice of Nassau-Siegen. It was built around 1640 in the purest Classical style to designs by J. van Campen. Today the Mauritshuis is home to the Royal Collection of paintings, one of the most important in the world. The museum is well worth a visit, not only in order to discover some of the most famous works of Dutch art, but also to admire what was originally a private house.
