Panorama Mesdag, The Hague

4.6
Panorama Mesdag, a large cylindrical painting of a seaside town, gives the viewer an impression of being inside the landscape. Stand atop a sand dune and observe villagers at work, fishing boats docked on the seashore, and houses in the distance. Along with the realistic painting style, the feel of the place is augmented by the sand and beach objects placed below the painting on hilly terrain, making the illusion more striking. The piece was completed in 1881 by Mesdag, his wife, and his student painters.

  • the museum gives good insight in the painters life and intentions. On getting to the Panorama we were absolute surprised by the quality and set up of the Panoramic painting. Must see when in Den Hague  more »
  • A truly great experience to discover how Scheveningen was around 1880. A huge painting all around you shows the village, the sea, the beach, ships etc. Great details and coloring. Very friendly staff ...  more »
  • If the receptionists in our hotel hadn't raved about the Panorama, we wouldn't have visited it as the photos on its website can't show how impressive it is. Go and see it for yourself.  more »

  • I would say that this museum is very well done, the people are friendly and soir with a smile. Some paints are impressive from Mr. Mesdag. The panorama itself is breathe taking, definitely worth a check, so well done that you could look at an illusion. You’ll probably spent around 1Hr over there, the place is not huge but very nice!
  • Nice view of a fabulous painting. Your eyes can't tell you if the view is real or not. We visited it many times and every time we discover new things in the painting.
  • Amazing light presentation in 360 degree view. A very good place for children 's education about the history in Scheveningen, the most beautiful beach in the Netherlands ( I personally prefer Katwijk Beach) also Jan Giesen works are also very attractive.... MUST visit... when you are in the Hague
