This place (i'm not much of a gusher) is simply spectacular. I've been three times in my life, once when I was six (still have those fond memories) and then twice in the last couple of years. It's so good I actually become a little...More
Although the Louman requires a taxi or Uber ride to access, it is well worth it. Even if you are not a car fanatic, you will be amazed and entertained by the breadth and depth of this collection of more than 250 automobiles from the...More
Really excellent collection of classic cars from horse drawn carriages to modern cars. The collection of cars from 1900 to 1960, is very extensive. However the collection of cars from 1960 to modern day is less extensive. Not a problem, if you really like your...More
If you've got the money, you spend it on cars, when you lack imagination, but if you're beyond that you may exhibit them and that's what Louwman did. Hundreds of them, old, new, great, weird. An absolute must even if you're not as car crazy...More

The Louwman Museum complicates your itineray a bit, as it is on the edge of town with no easy public transport available. If you do want to visit the Museum anyway, you can take regional buses 90, 385 or 386 from The Hague Central Station to bus stop Waalsdorperlaan. This should take about 10 to 15 minutes. You can take the same buses back to central station. To Madurodam you can take tram 9 from central station to tram stop "Madurodam". The tram stops in front of the main entrance. Tram 9...More
Museum websites - are they accurate? (5 Replies)
An otherwise delightful Christmas stay in the Netherlands, based in Haarlem, travelling to Delft, The Hague and Leiden, was marred by inaccurate information on museum websites regarding opening hours. Because of the time of year, before setting out we double-checked the websites of two potentially very interesting museums. First, the Louwman Museum in The Hague with its wonderful car collection closed an hour earlier than stipulated so we missed it – after an unpleasant exchange of views with...More

Thank you, Jan. We did in fact check the websites of both the museums. I always try to do this, rather than use a third-party website. In the case of the Louwman, we checked on the 24th and it clearly stated closing time to be 17.00, which is why we showed up at 15.45. Likewise the American Pilgrim Museum which also led us to believe i would be open from 12.00 until 16.00. I think the answer is perhaps to phone the museum to check on public holiday arrangements.
Visit to the Louwman Museum from Amsterdam (3 Replies)
I will be in Amsterdam in May and would love to make a visit to the Louwman Museum in the Hague. How long is the train ride from Amsterdam? Is the Musuem located convenient to the city center, an easy taxi ride from the train station? Can this trip be made in a half day?

Thank you for this information. It looks like it would be possible to visit the museum but certainly will take more than half a day. Do you know if the buses to the museum operate often? I tried to use the website you recommended and the calendar would not allow me past Feb. Perhaps schedule changes will occurr that they are not ready to post. Your assistance is truly appreciated.
