The outside of the building is impressive but if you get a chance to visit the inside it is recommended. Quite a building!

This was fascinating & we would loved to have done a tour around the Palace itself. In the event the exhibition was still very interesting & I learnt a lot about the Palace. Would go again for the tour.

Take a lovely walk from the city centre out to the Peace Palace for a great experience. Make sure you look at the opening hours if you wish to go inside although still a marvelous view and photo opportunity from the outside. Many great displays inside the display area which give a great overview of history from the 1890s, in... More

This is a remarkable building. Some 15 min walk from the very center. Went there twice, once during day time, once during the night when it looks so mystical. Unfortunately you cannot enter it on a daily basis. There are guided organized tours which occur mainly on weekends, so look ahead for it. In front of the entrance to the... More

The display area with headsets in various languages is free and done very well. Takes about 30 min. Gives the complete history from 1890 to present. The actual palace does not have tours however.

We just happened to get off the train just outside of the gates of the Peace Palace! We wanted to see if we could take a tour. Unfortunately there weren't tours the day we were there, but they did offer a free self guided tour with a headset. We took that and learned a great deal about this historic place.... More

Make sure you book (on line or in advance somehow) as this is a very unique place in the world. The architecture is gorgeous as are the stunning pieces donate as gifts by many member countries. The Japanese silk tapestries are world the trip alone. I loved the main court room and it's lovely stained glass windows. I just wish... More
