we took the tram to the station and then bought tickets in a machine and headed to the track where the train was coming through on the way to our destination.
When we got to The Hague we found a very modern train station complex but a quick walk took us into the old section of town - where we made our first stop at the Mauritshuis Museum (a sort of Frick Collection for the Netherlands.) This is the location of several Rembrandts and Vermeers within a sum total of sixteen smallish rooms -not huge galleries like most museums - this is house (mansion) sized....
we arrive at the Mauritshuis -
so we found the collection astounding-
and two of the best known works in the collection- the Goldfinch and the Girl with a Pearl Earring (once a part of the Six Collection)
and just a pattern and texture shot of the lockers located in the museum
since this has gone on quite long I will continue the The Hague explorations in a further post- so stay tuned for the Mesdag Panorama and the "new herring" season...
