Retracing childhood steps
Jul 2021
Many decades ago, when a little kid, I visited this Panorama with my parents. It has always stuck in my memory: the artificial dune, the seagulls screaming, the great 360-degree view of Scheveningen as a small fishing village that no longer exists, the fishing boats laid out on the beach, the cavalry training. With pandemic restrictions lifting, or lifted, it was great to revisit this spectacular museum. True, aside from the panoramic view the museum has a rather small collection, but the impression the panorama makes should make up for that. And even the small collection of other, related works, is nice to take in. And yes, the seagulls are still screaming overhead. Do go, if you have the chance!

A great way to experience how artists, 140 years ago, managed to convey a panoramic view of a fisherman's village to visitors of their exhibition all over the world. The temporary exhibition at the gallery, CANDID, was also extremely fun and interesting.

Another must visit

For the first time visitor to the city or even the country, this should be a must visit as has got to be one of the best landscape painting during that time.

An enthralling experience
Jul 2020 • Family
This museum enables you to stand on the top of a dune 140 years ago and watch the spectacular view all around you of a largely pre-industrial, pre-mechanized world. Two plumes of steamboats on the horizon presage the modern times; the wooden flat bottom fishing boats have sails and are drawn onto the beach by horses. As you keep observing you will keep encountering new surprising details. All painted by hand, 140 years ago.

Amazing atmosphere!

I have not been too interested in visiting Art Galleries BUT Mesdag Panorama was the biggest and best surprise ever, loved it! We will return again on our next trip to Holland for sure. Highly recommended visit for those who normally don't feel like going to museums etc!!!!! The light effects in the tower were produced by the real changes in the weather on the outside ( sunshine and clouds). Marvellous!

Some unusual experience
Sep 2019
The panorama Mesdag is situated in the house where he used to live. This panorama looks very realistic because it is 3D painting at 360 degrees. You stay in the middle of a room and you can see the view of an old fishermen village exactly as it was some 120 years ago.It is very interesting as you do not see very often something like that. If you happen to be in The Hague do not miss it.

What an interesting experience this was, the painted walls had a three dimensional effect. Really a unique experience at this venue.

A must see in the Hague

This small museum is famous for its panorama painting of Mesdag, one of the oldest in his kind. Beautifully painted and well placed in a natural environment. Depth and perspective at its best
