Before visiting this museum, I did not know anything about Escher, and now I'm a little ashamed. As for me, I have a lot of interesting, and modern in my perception of works. The house was a former royal palace, and it + too

The museum lies in the heart of The Hague and displays fascinating pieces of Art from this peculiar artist. The staff is kind and well organised. The museum is situated in an old royal palace in which Queen Mother Emma lived in the very beginning...More
Through lithographies and wooden cut papers mainly in chronological order, the exhibition shows the evolution of the man (prior to the evolution of the artist), the influence of his trips and his long stay in Italy and all the most important works. Interesting the third...More
Set in the old royal palace with sparkling modern chandeliers this collection at first seems out of place and time - yet it’s juxtaposition is part of the experience. The director showed us round and was perfectly charming, informative and engaging. It’s the kind of...More
I knew Escher's later work but was fascinated to see his early pieces on the ground floor. Make sure you watch the video, which gives you additional context for both the first and second floors. Loved the 'inspired by' modern section on the top floor...More

A real find, Escher does wonderful engravings that are at times surrealistic. Currently housed in an extraordinary historical house it will soon (2018) move to the old American embassy nearby where the art will be the same but maybe not the magical location.
