The Louwman Museum is home to the world's oldest private collection of motor cars, compiled by two generations of the Louwman family. The museum dates back to 1934 and now comprises over two hundred and fifty antique and classic motor cars. Experts regard the collection as one of the most beautiful in the World. The museum exudes passion. Each car has its own story to tell, its own contribution to history. The motor car is a mirror of culture. The collection is housed in a purpose-built museum in The Hague, the city where P.W. Louwman established his Dodge and Chrysler import company. The building, designed by American architect Michael Graves, blends in sympathetically with its historic surroundings. The landscape gardens, designed by Lodewijk Baljon, complement the architecture of the building.

Great selection of cars

Great selection of cars, well organized by their production years. When arriving by public transport, be prepared to walk 1.5 k/m from the nearest Tram.

They change their exhibits every time I go, so it is always a joy to just wander around and see what's new. There's Churchill's car, one of Elvis' collection, Hitler's ride and James Bond's Aston Martin. At the end of the visit, visitors will pass through a picturesque cafe made to look like a Parisien street, and that is perhaps... More

While on holiday in Holland visiting our daughter and her family they took my husband and I to this motor museum. I thought it would be a boring day with the boys looking and talking cars all day. But I really enjoyed it and we spent about 4 hours there. The collection is huge and varied going from the earliest... More

This antique car museum has a huge collection, so you'll need at least two ours to visit it properly. It's located a bit far from the central area but you can use this opportunity to visit some beautiful parks close to it.

If you love cars, this is the place to go. The collection is extremely large and varied and there are often special exhibitions. The entrance price is quite high.

Aside from the memorable vehicle exhibits this museum offers far more - the collection of motoring art including the largest collection of F Gordon Crosby art I have ever seen, and the porclein and silver collections, the recreated Dutch street, and the fabulous external architecture are all truly wonderful. Allow yourself at least 4 to 6 hours !

If it wasn't No 1 on TA, I probably wouldn't visit this museum. I am not a car freak, and I went there skeptical. But I it blew me away. It is on 3 floors, you start at the top by a lift, and then you go downwards. The display is chronologically organized from the first late 19th century steam... More

Wonderful museum. The complete history of cars is there to see. I'm 65 years old and felt like a young boy seeing all these beautiful cars. The museum is a nice modern building on the outside and inside you find the most beautiful collection of motor carriages and cars you could imagine. If you want, you can spend almost a... More

Tied this visit in with a Karting trip at Race Planet in Delft. The museum was the 'other thing to do' whilst in the area of Rotterdam but to be honest is was probably the better of the two. Really nicely laid out and a really relaxed atmosphere to the place and what a place. The central hall is magnificent... More
