MAURITSHUIS

Every now and then I like to plan a day for culture. This time I visited Mauritshuis in The Hague. It is home to some of the best Dutch Golden Age paintings. I finally got the chance to see Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring (see below)! The building itself is absolutely gorgeous! It is not very big, so if you are short on time, you’ll be able to quickly see everything. How often do you go to museums? Advertisements

A DAY FOR ART

I’m excited to tell you about my recent visit to the Escher Museum (or Escher in het Paleis) in the Hague. It is an incredible exhibition in what was formerly the Winter Palace of Queen Mother Emma of the Netherlands, which features prints by the famous Dutch artist Escher. Escher’s work is so unique and distinguishable. The way magic, perspective, and illusions are intertwined is fascinating. Go and see for yourself! What also impressed me is the palace itself. Absolutely gorgeous! Each room has a unique chandelier. The best is that the rooms can be hired for receptions, special occasions, and exclusive dinners. Pretty awesome, right?
