All reviews top floor queen emma queen mother his life optical illusion third floor three floors interactive exhibits famous works great museum worth a visit on display nice building den haag small museum art museum museum card
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!
This museum has 4 floors and they are all different. Especially the top floor is very special: it has optical tricks, interactive games and much more fun!
This artist is a very interesting person, even if you know nothing about him yet.
We visited the Escher exposition in the Palace. The building itself is as great as the exposition it self. The building has been used by the royal family and the story is told between the exposition of Escher. From different technics to modern art illusions....More

Being a long time fan of Escher and his works, I couldn’t let an opportunity to visit the museum in The Hague. It was a great experience, but what made it more delightful for me was the setting. Three floors of the front part of...More

There are direct trains from Amsterdam airport to The Hague. From there on it is a 10-15 minute walk to the museum. a visit takes about an hour and a half so no problem on a sunday. They close at 5 p.m.

Hi Amit, There is treasure hunt/quest for kids to "guide" them trough the exhibtion, the quirky chandeliers are worth looking at. There is also an interactive part on the top floor where kids and adults can play with perspectives and let your eyes be fooled :) Enjoy!
