The largest museum in The Hague, occupies an elegant residence, and is named after the man who funded its construction, Count Johann Maurits of Nassau-Siegen. It was built in 1644 in the purest classical style with influences of Italian Renaissance architecture. The Mauritshuis holds now the paintings of the Royal Collection, one of the most prestigious in the world. The number of paintings on canvas is not large, but it is a very nice museum to visit. Its attractions are "The Girl with a Pearl Earring" by Vermeer, "The Cata of Lice" by Gerard ter Bosch, and "The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp" by Rembrandt.
