Travel back in time in The Hague. Step into Panorama Mesdag and just like that, you’re no longer in a modern city but on the beach in Scheveningen in the late 19th century. All based on the largest painting in the Netherlands!

Visitors to Museum Panorama Mesdag find themselves in the largest painting in the Netherlands. All around you in every direction, you’ll discover Scheveningen as it was in the late 19th century. The 14-meter tall painting with a circumference of 120 m makes visitors believe they’re on the beach.

Hendrik Willem Mesdag created his world-famous panorama in under four months. He didn’t manage this single-handed: he was helped in the project byhis wife Sientje Mesdag-van Houten, and by De Bock, Blommers and Breitner from The Hague School.

Panorama van Scheveningen is the oldest panorama in the world still in its original location. The museum also puts on a surprising program of temporary exhibitions.
