Obviously ,the VerMeer's and Rembrant's were wonderful. But to luxuriate very quietly among the Steen's and other Dutch masterpieces was just a surprising experience. Like being in the Frick in NYC!

This museum had several Rembrandt paintings and the famous Girl with a pearl earing. It is not a very large museum, which is great. It gave us the opportunity to take our time and enjoy the beautiful art work and the building itself.
