when the Outdoor Museum offers both?
This part of The Hague can be described as ’typically Dutch’. Many notable artists lived and worked at these characteristic canals. Visit the dwelling houses of world famous painters like Paulus Potter, Jan Steen and his father in law Jan van Goyen and see how they lived. Their story is intertwined with Claes van Balckeneynde, who has built the royal palaces in The Hague as well as the Catshuis – the Dutch prime minister’s house. you can pay a visit to these houses and experience the Dutch Golden Age during one of our guided tours. The original work of these artists can be seen in the Mauritshuis or the Historical museum of The Hague, just a beautiful, twenty minute-walk away.
