Escher in The Palace is a listed building, which means we have limited facilities for disabled visitors. Accessing the Palace involves using several steps. Escher in The Palace has a wheelchair ramp for wheelchair users (max. capacity 250 kg). This is kept at the desk. Electric wheelchairs are generally too heavy for this ramp. All rooms in the Palace are threshold-free and a small lift is available for use (84 cm deep, 103 cm wide, max. capacity 250 kg). Wheelchairs can be borrowed from the desk. We regret that we do not have a disabled toilet.

We are celebrating the anniversary year 2023 with a special exhibition on Escher and his teacher and close friend Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita. This exhibition complements the permanent exhibition with the best-known works from Escher's oeuvre. The museum houses more than 125 works by Escher and 70 prints and drawings by Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita. These magnificent prints are being exhibited in a regal setting: the former winter palace of Queen Mother Emma.
