History with a Whisper

It's a great place to go and feel good about the world and the people who truly work towards Peace. Tours are offered only on certain days but the welcome center was informative.

As many have said before, it is very hard to get a tour in this magnificent building. You have to pre-book ahead of time. Our 18 year old daughter had this institution listed as number one to visit in Holland. It was disappointing not to get in the building or even on the grounds, even though we knew this on... More

The museums and palaces were closed so we had to peer through the gates. The Peace Palace and monuments are awe-inspiring, and the small circle peace garden made with all nations' bricks encircling it is movingly spiritual.

For anyone who loves history, this stop is a must. I was on my way back from France to Holland and I really wanted to see the Palace - so much history. Glad I did. If you are anywhere nearby and you are a fan of history, it's definitely a place you have to see.

Unfortunately, we couldn't get into the Palace or the grounds as some event was taking place and security was tight. However, we did have a look around the visitor centre which was very interesting. The audiophile was engaging and succinct, and we left with a much better understanding than when we went in.

There are places one cant visit inside the Peace Palace and it isnt at all times a tour is available. Hence, one must check the days and hours where there is a tour guide. Looking around is not enough, one must also be told the place of the Peace Palace in history. Otherwise one is confined to looking at the... More

The building, which was endowed by Carnegie, is gorgeous and inspiring but was closed for visits when we were there. A free audio guide and museum with superb curating explained in detail the history of the institution and what it does. What is missing is a narrative about its famous renderings and perhaps on its limitations as well.

Unfortunately did not get to go inside the Peace Palace but our group spent some time walking around and hearing some associated stories. Fantastic mosaic seats out the front and just the palace itself is magnificent.

We were unsure at to whether we could visit the Peace palace or just take photos from outside. There is a very good visitors centre. The admission is free and there is a free audio guide which was very educational. The audio tour is about 40 mins long.

Great visitors center with individual audio devices to hear display explanations. Palace wasn't open for tours but the grounds and location looked impressive.
