Tour description provided by Viator

During your 3 hour tour led by an art historian guide, you will visit the Royal Cabinet of Paintings, Mauritshuis.  Afterwards, you can take a stroll through the old center and visit the amazing XXL modern white City Hall. According to your own tastes, you may visit one more museum: The Hague Historical Museum, or a minor museum.
Meet your guide at 10:15am, who is a leading specialist in Dutch art, specifically Vermeer and Rembrandt. He is able to introduce you to the visual wonders and the painted elements. After about an hour inside the Museum, you will take a refreshment and proceed for a walk to the brand new white City Hall, designed by the US architect Richard Meier. It is one of the biggest atriums (inner halls) of any kind in Europe. As a statement of municipal power, it vies with other buildings in The Hague like the series of palaces and embassies. The Hague as the seat of government wishes to impress.Afterwards it is time for a bite (cost not included) which you will take at the big square (Plein) in one of the many colorful sidewalk cafes, either outside or inside. You may opt to visit one of other museums, and these are the options: the nearby Hague Historical Museum, or a minor museum such as the Bredius Museum with minor but interesting 17th century Dutch artists, collected by a former director of the Mauritshuis. You may also like to see the nearby Escher museum, which shows graphic art (lithography). A bit further away, the Gemeentemuseum holds the best Mondrian collection in the world and exhibits De Stijl story on design and furniture. Please note: a visit to the Gemeentemuseum requires a taxi ride or a tram ride on line 16 (your own expense).After the last museum visit, you will be directed towards the Railway Station.
