The former palace of the dutch Orange family is nowadays a museum with the prints of MC Escher. On three floors you see a lot of litho's and wood engravings. Also there are explanations of the palace.

This is a lovely museum located in one of the old palace buildings. There is a good representation of Escher’s art on display with a good many numbered lithographs. The pieces are well hung with space enough for viewing and the lighting on the pieces...More

If you like Escher, this is the place to visit. The museum is small but takes you through his life's work in more or less chronological fashion. A great rainy day visit for kids.

Delightful palace building, good display of Escher's work, and as always in Holland, a friendly welcome. Interactive kids zone on the top floor. Somewhat crampt basement has lockers, toilets and a cafe. Could use more seating, but the exhibition is well worth a visit.

I enjoyed the two upper floors the most. A lot of iconic works that capture the imagination and ones curiosity. Highly recommended. One thing: the place doesn’t accept the museum pass as I gathered from the group buying tickets before me.

For who loves sensenosense this is the right place. Interesting museum. You can’t use the museum card but the price is totally worth.

Hi, 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.
