Full description
Get discounted entry to Escher in Het Paleis, a permanent exhibition dedicated to the world-famous artist M.C. Escher, whose art startled millions of people all over the world. The collection is housed in the former Winter Palace of Queen Mother Emma of the Netherlands and is the only public building in The Hague where the original royal ambience has been maintained. See almost all of the works of the Dutch artist, including the 7-meter long Metamorphosis III, an enormous woodcut displayed in a non-conventional way that let’s you experience Escher combining time and space as an organic unity. Escher instills a sense of wonder, fascinating young and old alike. The exhibition includes famous “impossible” prints, such as “Day and Night”, where the Dutch landscape appears to morph into a flock of birds, and the famous “Climbing and Descending” depicting rows of people perpetually ascending and descending a flight of stairs. Located on the second floor of The Palace is the interactive exhibition “Looking as Escher Does” where as well as doing puzzles with your eyes, you can unravel some of Escher’s mysteries with your hands.

It’s easy to find and close to everything else you may want to explore. All of Escher's work is amazing and a variety of his work is on display. There’s also an interactive monitor to view Escher’s work from the beginning to the end of his life. The shop is brilliant too with popular Escher prints for sale and other art merchandise & jewellery. Well worth a visit, enjoy!

Escher is an exceptional and well ahead of his time. If you are in any way involved in graphic design this is a must see when in The Hague. I gave the exhibition a 4 instead of a 5 because the museum rooms are relatively small and air circulation sub optimal. Even though visitor numbers were kept low and controlled, I felt that mask wearing would be appropriate as well, especially for exhibits such as the video on the life of Escher which only 5 people can watch at a time, but which takes place in a small and stuffy space.

museum located in a historic residence with many works by Echer and other authors close to his artistic vision. The thematic areas are as well organized as the arrangement of the works. On the top floor there is a sort of interactive museum which, however, due to the covid was for the most part not usable. For those who love this author an essential visit
