Best time to visit
Early morning or late afternoon
  • See the permanent exhibition dedicated to the world famous Dutch artist, M.C. Escher
  • Explore most of Escher's work in the beautiful former Winter Palace of Queen Mother Emma of the Netherlands - a really special location in the Hague
  • Watch as your perceptions and perspectives change in Escher's Room and see the 7-meter long Metamorphosis III

You have to see it to believe this exhibition dedicated to M.C. Escher. Infinite staircases, impossible ziggurats, and metamorphizing animals abound in this collections of prints. Walk around the twisted works that took the world by storm in the former Winter Palace of Queen Mother Emma of the Netherlands, in The Hague.

It's a warped world of optical illusions in Lange Voorhout Palace, now that M.C. Escher's (1898-1972) imaginings are lining the walls.

Step into Escher's Room for some playtime with perspectives, where people might seem taller than they really are.

Be amazed and perhaps a bit confused by the 7-meter long Metamorphosis III. This huge piece depicts an organic unity between the real and surreal, featuring his trademark black-and-white checks, animals, flowers, and birds.

Almost all of Escher's work is here in the former Winter Palace of Queen Mother Emma of the Netherlands. Get ready to appreciate Escher over several innovative attractions, and prepare for your mind to be suitably boggled.

With tickets in the app, we walked right in. Easy and simple. The museum was marvelous, it takes you through Escher's work, from his two-dimensional drawings and woodcarvings to his renowned, and most fascinating, impossible worlds.
