Gemeentemuseum Den Haag

 

This is part two of our cultural weekend to the Netherlands. On Sunday we drove from Rotterdam to Den Haag (also called The Hague). It’s the second time that we visited the Gemeentemuseum. It’s such a gorgeus building to set foot in. Designed by Hendrik Petrus Berlage in the early 1930s, it really has this art deco feel to it. The grand hall is so much more than what you expect a museum to be, it isn’t this plain white room with four walls surrounding you. It’s this hall with small, yellow, white and brown walls and corners.

We saw three different exhibitions, “González, Picasso and friends“, Marthe Wéry” and “Uta Eisenreich
