Overview

The Louwman Museum is home to the world's oldest private collection of motor cars, compiled by two generations of the Louwman family. The museum dates back to 1934 and now comprises over two hundred and fifty antique and classic motor cars. Experts regard the collection as one of the most beautiful in the World. The museum exudes passion. Each car has its own story to tell, its own contribution to history. The motor car is a mirror of culture. The collection is housed in a purpose-built museum in The Hague, the city where P.W. Louwman established his Dodge and Chrysler import company. The building, designed by American architect Michael Graves, blends in sympathetically with its historic surroundings. The landscape gardens, designed by Lodewijk Baljon, complement the architecture of the building.

A very beautiful museum, the cars are exhibited superbly and what a collection of cars! Only comment is the parking below the museum which is less than friendly to a person in a wheelchair.

An interesting collection and comprehensive history of transportation, engines and automobiles, motorcycles and the odd plane and the manufacturing of them. All common, next to a lot of very exotic cars, Motorbike's and even F1 and other rare specimens are shown here.
