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

A great collection of Escher’s art. Our young teenager was fascinated by the optical illusions and the room on the top floor with the interactive displays was fantastic.

You cannot predict how many interesting pieces of art were made by Mauritz Cornelis Escher, a visionary artist who actually force you to reflect on forms, geometry and creativity of a human being, highly inspired... Enjoy!!!

Worth a vist. Nice to have the little room on the top flor where you can get your picture taken. (Although I think they should let people take their photos, ie no need to pay extra for that).

The works of Escher are legendary and mesmerising. The palace gives them an extra special back drop. And the Escher inspired interactive exhibition on the last level is great fun

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.
