“Unbelievable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

I am not a car buff but this collection must be one of (if not) the finest in the world.
not a cheap museum to visit (charging for parking for example) but the experience is really worth it. you need to allow more time that you imagine as the collection is simply vast, and jaw-dropping in its quality.

“Mad about cars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Everyone who thinks he knows about cars or likes cars must be here. The display of beauty and elegance, the display of auto industry as art. Made with love and tylical Dutch scurpuliosity, it takes not only by its size (which is hige, make no mistake, you WILL need three hiurs!) but also by the way it tells its story.

“Fascinating and not just for car fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

The building itself made quite an impression before we even got inside and viewed the collection! It is set in large grounds with good car and bike parking. The reception staff were helpful and friendly. Visitors begin the self-guided tour on the second floor, and the exhibition is in chronological order starting with early horse-drawn carriages, progressing to steam and then petrol vehicles. One section is divided into different decades through the twentieth century, and there are specialist sections, e.g. racing cars and American Cadillacs. Look out for the Aston Martin that Sean Connery drove in Goldfinger! All exhibits have full descriptions in Dutch and English. On the ground floor of the museum you can walk through an authentic-looking old fashioned 'street' which opens into a restaurant area. Our only regret was not allowing enough time to explore this fascinating museum. We would allow three hours next time.

“One of the best motor museums in the world. Not just for "petrol-heads" though!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is a superb place to visit by bicycle, car or public transport. It is near the park where the Royal Palace is situated between The Hague and Wassenaar.
The architecture is superb and state of the art with excellent accessibility for all. The collection is extensive and ranges from the dawn of motoring through to the modern day. The racing car collection is great as well as the cars of historical significance (either design landmarks or famous owners). The memoribilia and auto art collection was worth seeing let alone the cars!!!

“Worth visiting but not good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I were very satisfied and happy to visit this museum that I came twice and brought my friends. Only thing I was pushed off was very poor service by the account. Been there twice and accountants serving with tickets were very rude and arrogant. They dont bother explaining or answering your questions. Also there is no such a waiting room where you could use a caffee if I would try come again. This is not very thoughtful and business orientated.
