Not so crowded and provides a really interesting historical background of the Hague (as the name implies). Recommended if you have more than a few days to spend in the Hague and are interested in Dutch history.
A good tour around the museum takes about 2-3 hours. There are paintings, artifacts, photos and videos about the city trough time. The size of the museum was just perfket not too big and not too small.

Dear Karen H,
Thank you for contacting us. Interesting to hear that your family name is Haag! We advice you to go to the municipal archives of The Hague or try the foundation Jewish Heritage The Hague.
