A very interesting museum that highlights a lost art form. Perhaps even more interesting than the actual panorama is all of the museum pieces showing the tools and techniques that needed to be developed by the artist to enable this creation. If you are tired...More

Mesdag is not as famous as some of the other dutch painters but this has to be seen to be believed ! He was mainly a 'Sea painter'. The panorama nicely captures the situation of The Hague in the olden times. A 'must see' on...More
