  • This collection is a hidden gem. learn a lot about the "haagse school" H W Medag, the banker son who became a painter. Also very much interesting information on his contemporaries and his wife Sientje. Very worth it, if possible, book a tour with explanation vd free Academy, which is worth it.

  • Today the beautiful museum, the rooms with the collection of Hendrik Willem and Sientje Mesdag and the special garden visited. The films in which is told how this collection came into being are fascinating and educational. That collection is impressive, with of course also work of them myself. At present the exhibition "Urban Larsson, to painted life", surprisingly: Urban also painted Dutch celebrities!

  • 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.
  • Nice collection of Mesdag paintings
  • Small, but particularly meseum if you of the Hague School. We have the exposition of paintings of Urban Larsson. Very nice, but the lighting could be better.
