Hague museums: custodians of cultural heritage
The Hague and region has some thirty museums. Some enjoy international fame. Others are less well-known but none the less interesting for that. Art museums such as the Gemeentemuseum The Hague, the Statues by the Sea Museum, Panorama Mesdag and the Mauritshuis add colour to the city, together with for example the Hague Historical Museum, the Mesdag Museum, Gallery Prince William V and others.
The Museum for Communication focuses attention on communication: the latest developments in the field of post and telephone, but also special postal stamps and antique telephones. Museum Scheveningen gives visitors a lively picture of the history of this fishing village. Fishing and seaside activities were dominant factors in everyday life and gave the village a unique character. The specific rural character of the former agricultural and historical village of Loosduinen is preserved in ‘De Korenschuur’ Museum.
Galeries and art houses
Beside museums, The Hague boasts a great number of galeries and art houses. Around the Denneweg, the Frederikstraat, the Mesdagkwartier and the Noordeinde area art lovers have a wide choice of art and antiques.
