The Hague 7. Mauritshuis
An advertisement at the Maurits House. (It is called Maurits House because Prince Maurits lived there, he is one of the decendants of Prince William, don't ask me how and what!
The Maurits House, located on the Square, is an art museum. This is a tourist destination. It houses some of the Old Masters, I asume, I have never been there. Not for any reason, but it is simply such a tourist destination thay you don't visit it. But would be interesting to do one time I guess.
