No matter your age, as long as you can climb stairs, this is an amazing place. The detailed paintings in the exhibition are exeptional. When we came up the windy stairs to the main part of the museum, the panorama we were totally blown away and just stopped in our tracks. We spent well over half and hour just walking... More

The text accompanying pieces are very informative. Audio pieces available for €1. But the highlight what can I say only go and see for yourself. My highlight of... More

Utterly worth seeing-an extraordinary survival and even my 13 year old ipad era son went "wow- that is amazing!". Afterwards we cycled up to the beach (only 15 minutes on a bike) to get close to the orginal location where the panorama was taken- just one building remains. I do feel though that €10 entrance is too much for such... More

Well worth a visit. Vastly better in reality than it sounds - you can't believe your eyes. The perspective is brilliant. One can only hope the restoration in the 1980's ensures this work lasts another hundred years. The temporary accompanying exhibition although different and modern was also worth seeing.

The Panorama is quite a spectacular experience as you go through a dark tunnel and up a spiral staircase then emerge onto a platform and feel like you are actually at the seaside. As you study it in more depth like things keep appearing to you form the painting as you wonder at it's magnificence and how did Mesdag actually... More

This museum houses a cylindrical painting by Mesdag. the building was specially constructed for this painting. From the observation point in the center of the round construction the spectator is led to believe that he or she is standing on a dune near the sea overlooking the beaches and village of Scheveningen in the late 19th century. It is a... More

The other painting of Mesdag weren't quite as interesting to me. There was a temporary exhibition of The Kidd, which combines photoshop with art, very fascinating to see! The actual panorama is truely remarkable. The detail and the scenery are amazing. Not worth a very long visit, but combined with a ticket to another museum a realy must-see.

I did not had great expectations for this. Yet after this visit I can say that it tatolly worth it. The fact that you can enjoy a 360 view of the place more than 130 ago is great opportunity. And there are also some small other collections exhibited there so you can spend some time for sure.
