The Louwman Museum is home to the world's oldest private collection of motor cars, compiled by two generations of the Louwman family. The museum dates back to 1934 and now comprises over two hundred and fifty antique and classic motor cars. Experts regard the collection as one of the most beautiful in the World. The museum exudes passion. Each car has its own story to tell, its own contribution to history. The motor car is a mirror of culture. The collection is housed in a purpose-built museum in The Hague, the city where P.W. Louwman established his Dodge and Chrysler import company. The building, designed by American architect Michael Graves, blends in sympathetically with its historic surroundings. The landscape gardens, designed by Lodewijk Baljon, complement the architecture of the building.

A favorite when I'm in the Netherlands. Can't recommend enough. The landscape provides a perfect getaway on the weekends and and the artwork always manages to give me a new perspective I can use in my personal and professional life.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
How much time should I allocate for this museum, bearing in mind I am not a car enthusiast? And is there a highlights guide so I can see the better exhibits (e.g. 007's Aston Martin) without having to see everything?
