“Impressive collection”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Next to visiting Panorama Mesdag, make sure that you visit the private collection of the Mesdag couple. Both musea are very near to each other. The building has been restored and looks fwonderful. The paintings are very interesting, the only downside is that some of them are difficult to see. It is quite dark in the rooms and as we visited the museum in the winter, there was not much light from outside. You will also see some great artifacts.

“just a must”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

no dislike about this, we had a special behind the scenes tour for explanation to a few Chinese guests, it has always been fabulous and did not loose its splendour

“a trip worth”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

The Mesdag collection itself can be less interesting, but the Panorama is exceptional especially the first time you walked up the stairs and it seems you find yourself in a real XIXth century fishermen village. Nice experience!

“See along with Panorama Mesdag”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

While Panorama Mesdag is a "do not miss" sight in Den Haag, the museum containing the art collection of H. W. Mesdag and his wife Sientje is just as important to see.
