The Louwman Museum in The Hague houses a unique collection of more than 250 highlights of automotive history. Taking you for a spin, so to speak, through more than 130 years of human progress, innovation, and design.
In addition, to showing how automotive transport has evolved over the years, the one-of-a-kind collection of rare automobiles and memorabilia also allows visitors to discover the advances in technology, design trends, growing wealth and changing social trends. You will find everything from the first-ever electric vehicle, built more than a century ago, to some of the 20th-century’s most stunning automotive designs.
The Louwman Museum also offers ancillary collections of vehicle-themed art, miniature models, posters, trophies, and even airplanes. They are all well worth a look.
The full collection is housed in the Michael Graves-designed main museum building, which is located in a lush section of The Hague renowned for its grand estates. The building covers an area of 16,000 square meters, divided across three floors. The garden landscape is beautifully integrated with the Haagse Bos, a protected wooded area within the city.
