If you are at least a little interested in cars, and even more so, if you are their fan, you will be in incredible delight, visiting the museum of cars in The Hague. This is a real treasure trove of achievements of the world car industry from the first steam engines to ultra-modern electric cars.
The Louwman Museum is considered to be the oldest private collection of cars in the world, assembled by two generations of the Louwman family. The museum was founded in 1934 and demonstrates to visitors more than two hundred and fifty antique and classic cars. Connoisseurs consider it one of the most beautiful private collections in the world.
The museum is located at Leidsestraatweg 57 2594 BB The Hague in the Netherlands, and it is most convenient to get there by car or, for example, by renting a bicycle. The museum is open daily from 10.00 to 17.00, except on Mondays. The cost of the adult ticket is 15 euros, for teenagers (13-18 years old) – 7.50 euros, for children (5-12 years old) – 5 euros, and for children under 5 years old – free of charge. But you obviously will not regret the money spent.
On three floors of the museum, a unique collection of cars of the 19th-21st centuries from Europe, the USA, Japan, India, China and other countries is assembled.
Here you can see luxury “Jaguars”, the fashionable “Chevrolet”, “Cadillac” of Elvis Presley, Mercedes Benz of the last German Emperor Kaiser Wilhelm II, the old models of Volvo, Ford, Fiat and Toyota, the first motorcycles, ancient fire engines, race cars-winners, taxi from the movie “Godfather”, cars in the form of a ship, airplane and even a swan … In general, you feel dizzy from such an incredible collection. No one exhibit will not leave you indifferent.
Here you can spend several hours studying and photographing exclusive cars. And if you are tired and wanted to have a snack, a pleasant surprise awaits you: an atmospheric restaurant in the form of an old street with retro cars, as well as a rarity aircraft with a propeller and airship under the ceiling. It’s definitely worth stopping here to be transferred to the atmosphere of the early 20th century.
I was at the Louwman museum with a company of friends, among whom were women who do not understand the models of cars, men who adore cars, and just small children. And everyone, without exception, was delighted with this exhibition. And some tourists, who have been here, even call this place the most interesting in Holland. You don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself!
