We only visited the exhibition as we had not prebooked on a tour. The (free) visitor centre is small, but is is very good indeed. The information was very detailed, the few objects on show really interesting, and the video very strong. Some really good examples of how the courts have worked in practice. I usually dislike audio guides with... More

It has a visitors Centre nowadays, but make sure you get one of the guided tours. The inside of the Palace is amazing: all original states participating in the Peace Palace and its function as a Court to settle interstate disputes legally contributed to the interior. Italian marble mozaic floors, and beautiful American wooden structures holding the ceiling together.

This palace comes right out of a fairytail and is beautiful to watch on a stroll at a summer evening. Listen closely at the right hand of the palace to the 'Haagse beek', a little stream of water running through The Hague.

We just walked around the outside of the gate. Tours inside can be arranged easily but we didn't do this. May go back at a later date when we have more time.

I visited the Peace Palace on a Day of National Mourning in Holland in memory of the victims of the Malaysian Airline flight shot down over Ukraine. That could have colored by very bad impression of this place. But what a failure. It was complete in 1913 -- just in time for World War I, didn't prevent World War II... More

This is a beautiful building and is a must visit for those who are interested in architecture. While one may not normally enter the building, it is good to take photos outside and to buy some postcards at the entrance shop there.

We stopped here on our way to our hotel from our Viking River Cruise. Of course, we too were unable to actually get into the palace, but we did do the audio tour in the museum. It gave us some good history, and facts about what happened here. One interesting thing we did do was to write our "wish for... More
