  • Where the Barbizon and The Hague schools meet. Excellent collection of late 19th, early 20th centuries (mostly) French and Dutch painters. Mesdag himself and his wife were accomplished painters (also wealthy collectors and benefactors). The captions displayed next to the paintings are in Dutch and English. Don't miss the gardens, nice views of the Peace Palace.
  • Nice, small collection of decent artists.
