Escher in Het Paleis
During the 20th century, M.C. Escher was a prominent Dutch artist who applied mathematics and geometry to his graphic art. Because of this, his art has a beautiful symmetry to it that is very captivating to the eye. Housed in what was once a royal palace, Escher in Het Paleis is a museum dedicated to the artist’s work. Explore over 150 of his most famous prints, in addition to woodcuts, mosaics, landscapes, and more. The second floor has been converted to an interactive, optical illusion experience, so that visitors may ‘see things through Escher’s eyes.’ Since the space was once a palace, there are many areas, including the ballroom, that maintain its regal charm, making it a popular venue for weddings and other special events.
Opening Hours: 11:00am-5:00pm Tuesday-Sunday
