Overview

The Louwman Museum is home to the world's oldest private collection of motor cars, compiled by two generations of the Louwman family. The museum dates back to 1934 and now comprises over two hundred and fifty antique and classic motor cars. Experts regard the collection as one of the most beautiful in the World. The museum exudes passion. Each car has its own story to tell, its own contribution to history. The motor car is a mirror of culture. The collection is housed in a purpose-built museum in The Hague, the city where P.W. Louwman established his Dodge and Chrysler import company. The building, designed by American architect Michael Graves, blends in sympathetically with its historic surroundings. The landscape gardens, designed by Lodewijk Baljon, complement the architecture of the building.

Indeed for the classic car lovers as well as those nostalgia lovers. If you are only keen on the latest cars, then this might not suit you. Not very crowded. Easy to get to. 1 stop by bus from den haag central.

Let's start to say that I'm not a car lover. For this reason I was not the most enthusiastic person when my son asked me to visit the museum. But I have to admit that he was right. The museum is really nice, well done,...More

As a car enthusiast and visitor to other such museums, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. There are few cars built after 1970, but that's no bad thing as once you are past the very earliest exhibits, there is a surprise around every corner. Lots of...More

How much time should I allocate for this museum, bearing in mind I am not a car enthusiast? And is there a highlights guide so I can see the better exhibits (e.g. 007's Aston Martin) without having to see everything?
