Our building at the Lange Voorhout has a long history. Read about its origins, the Royals who lived here and how this palace became the residence of a permanent exhibition dedicated to Escher.
The Hague and the Kingdom of the Netherlands are closely linked. The regal allure of The Hague is clearly evident all around the city.
The museum shop is located on the ground floor in one of the beautiful rooms of the Palace. It is managed and staffed by volunteers, all the proceeds are used for Art and Culture projects in The Hague and the Escher collection of the Museum.
The MC Café is a pleasant place to take a break in your museum visit. It is housed in the former kitchen of Queen Emma. Here, in addition to enjoying the extensive daily selection, you can also reserve a celebrationary high tea. The MC Café is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Donald Judd (1928 - 1994) was one of the foremost practitioners of minimal art. This was primarily an American movement that around 1965 designed objects using basic industrial materials such as sheet metal, wood or plywood. In 1992 Judd designed the parquet for The Palace.
Dutch sculptor Hans van Bentem designed for the former Royal rooms on the ground and first floor very special chandeliers like a skull, a spider and an umbrella. The objects from the big chandelier in the central hall, the globe, the pair of compasses and the bow are all taken from the white wall decorations in the entrance hall.
