So I ticked off the Escher museum from my bucket list! What an artist! Amazing experience both the palace and the art on display. Plan to spend at least three hours here.

I have been a fan of Escher and his "impossible" art for decades but had never been to this museum. If you are not familiar, Google him and you will be hooked. The setting (house) is very nice and you can have lunch in the...More

Lots of Escher's work are in display. Very modern and with lots of optical illusion pictures. Very doable in less then 2 hours visit

A fun museum that is within a palace in the loveliest little boulevard. I enjoyed the setting more than the exhibition.

I didn't know Escher's work before I went but the exhibition is well thought out and beautifully curated. And the Paleis with its contemporary chandeliers is also well worth visiting.

Interesting display of art in a beautiful palace. A pleasure and entertainment for the eyes playing tricky images. The palace is a great environment very well presented.

This is no regular art museum. Made more interesting as you walk tro the old palace rooms. the art pieces done by Escher certainly challenges your normal convention, your imagination is stretched. Spent a leisurely 2 hours there and got a teenager engaged in the...More

2 experiences in one. First the paleis. It makes you appreciate your own life as the building is maybe pretentious, but clearly only shows how the queens of the past lived in what is probably a very modest life. But then Escher 's work. Amazing...More

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.
