The Escher Museum is located at The Hague, a city located 30 minutes by train from Amsterdam, and it's totally worth the trip. Escher's works of art are simply stunning, his curious view of reality is a mind teaser for all art lovers. Highly recommended specially after a quick stop by a local coffee shop!

If you like modern art , lines , perspective or if you know Escher, you'll love visiting this museum. On three floor you'll be able to discover the style of Escher with is lines and infinite recursions. Really enjoyed it. Too bad it doesn't work with the dutch museumkart.

Across the street of hotel Des Indes you will find the Escher museum. 'Escher in Het Paleis' is a permanent exhibition dedicated to the world-famous artist M.C. Escher, whose art startled millions of people all over the world. The collection is housed in the former Winter Palace of Queen Mother Emma of the Netherlands. It is the only public building in The Hague where the original royal ambience of a palace has been maintained.

I was debating if it was a bit of an overkill to ride the train for an hour from Amsterdam just to visit a museum, but I am so glad that I did it, for I loved loved loved the Escher Museum. I suppose I could just buy a book and look at all the prints, but there is something special about going around the rooms and admiring each one carefully.
As a bonus, the museum is housed in the former winter palace of Queen Emma, but the chandelier of the rooms were done by a modern artist, so you get this juxtaposition of a stately house with oddly shaped objects hanging from the ceiling.
Also, I got a coupon at the ticket counter for the Gemeentemuseum, so I saved 1.5 euro when I went to see the Girl with a Pearl Earring there.
