The Louwman Museum is home to the world's oldest private collection of motor cars, compiled by two generations of the Louwman family. The museum dates back to 1934 and now comprises over two hundred and fifty antique and classic motor cars. Experts regard the collection as one of the most beautiful in the World. The museum exudes passion. Each car has its own story to tell, its own contribution to history. The motor car is a mirror of culture. The collection is housed in a purpose-built museum in The Hague, the city where P.W. Louwman established his Dodge and Chrysler import company. The building, designed by American architect Michael Graves, blends in sympathetically with its historic surroundings. The landscape gardens, designed by Lodewijk Baljon, complement the architecture of the building.

The McLaren exhibition was the reason that I decided to go there. It has a good collection of cars ranging from the mid of 19th century onward.

This is definitely a museum you have to visit while in The Hague. I've been at this place a few occasions and i can't get enough of it. Amazing car and motorcycle collection that makes you go back in time.

If you are a carlover, this is the place to visit. It's all there from the early stages, that carriages where transformed into motorvehicles to cars in modern time. And is never crowded. When you visit The Hague with your childres, take them there.

People go to the Hague to see Madurodam, the Mauritshaus and the like, and I don't think anyone would consider it a natural place to find a world class car museum. I'm not sure why Louwman decided to locate his museum here (although I guess...More
