Escher in Het Paleis (Escher in the Palace) reviews
We found this while strolling around a flea market. Was not scheduled, but enjoyed the visit. Really cool to look at all the different types of art. more »
Embarrassed to say I haven't heard of Escher before visiting the palace. I was a bit wary at first because I thought that museums like these are a thing only people with an art education can enjoy... more »
So much fun. Both The Palace as well as the MC Escher art. They also had interactive art displays that were very much fun. The crystal chandeliers that were different in every room were another form of art. The gift store had very nice items at reasonable prices too. Well worth the time I truly enjoyed it.
This might be my favourite ever museum/gallery. Escher is unbelievably wonderful. The detail in the work is phenomenal. The ideas expressed are enchanting. Set aside a few hours to immerse yourself in something truly outstanding. I'm not usually so amazed, but I've just spent 2 of the most rewarding hours of my life. Joyful.
