  • Building really matches the environment! We got a tour of a volunteer. She really gave us interesting pieces of information.
  • Wonderful exhibition and close to the shores beaches of The Hague.
  • I went to the Picasso Sculpture Exhibition. The number of collections was few. But some sculptress were interesting.
  • A very nice collection of statues in their own exhibition and also some more experimental things like virtual reality art. The exhibition was also quite enjoyable with their grey icecream flavours. Sitting outside was during the summer also a high, it not being windy but very close to the sea, but in the winter that part could be a bit cold.
  • Cool wonderful location (5 stars). Exhibition is not so intersting (3 stars). Very expensive (1 star).
