The Mauritshuis in the centre of The Hague is currently being renovated. But the museum is still active and visible! Until mid-2014, Masterpieces from the Mauritshuis will be on display in the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. The museum offers different programmes:

Interactive Guided Tour ‘Masterpieces’
During this guided tour, pupils learn all about the collection's masterpieces. In addition to viewing and talking about Vermeer's ‘View of Delft’ and Rembrandt's ‘The anatomy lesson’, the museum educator also discusses the various genres in painting with them as well as the period in which the artworks were painted, the Golden Age.

For whom: suitable for all ages and levels of secondary education
Form of visit: 60-minute interactive guided tour
Group size: maximum of 15 pupils
Price: € 50.- 

Audio Guide
Pupils visit 'Masterpieces from the Mauritshuis' individually or in small groups. They can put together their own personalised tour with the aid of the audio guide, and decide for themselves what painting they would like to find out more about. The audio guide is an aid to help visitors when looking at the paintings, and may also be used to supplement the viewing guide 'Highlights of the Mauritshuis'.

For whom: pupils in the third year of higher secondary education (Dutch Havo and VWO) and above
Form of visit: self-organised
Group size: can be determined in consultation
