A reasonably prices museum presenting most of Escher's incredibly detailed and mind bending work. The museum is housed in a former Royal Palace and it's history is also displayed througout the museum. Don't forget the photo op on the top floor!

I am maybe biased but this exhibition is my favourite so far in The Hague. Escher is one of my favourite and this museum is presenting his work in a very interesting way in a great palace. The size of the exhibition is not overwhelming.

Great museum, seeing all these works of Escher together really tells the story of the development of the artist through his life and the abundance of artworks shows how significant his work is. The building itself is beautiful. A must go when in The Hague!
