  • Nice museum in the center. Escher presents a special way of art. We find it very special and fun. Hans and Estella.

  • ...... this is of course essential, but beware the museum is also a royal building so some pieces are kept as such and the area is limited! You have to be patient, since you accept a lot of visitors; this set aside, it's to do!

  • So much fun. Both The Palace as well as the MC Escher art. They also had interactive art displays that were very much fun. The crystal chandeliers that were different in every room were another form of art. The gift store had very nice items at reasonable prices too. Well worth the time I truly enjoyed it.
  • This might be my favourite ever museum/gallery. Escher is unbelievably wonderful. The detail in the work is phenomenal. The ideas expressed are enchanting. Set aside a few hours to immerse yourself in something truly outstanding. I'm not usually so amazed, but I've just spent 2 of the most rewarding hours of my life. Joyful.
