A day at the museum


Holland is not a big country, but when it comes to quality and quantity of museums they can be really proud of. After world’s famous Rijksmuseum or Van Gogh museum there are many more, maybe not yet discovered by foreign tourists but definitely worth visiting. Since a while I’m happy to be an owner of a Museum card that gives me free access to almost every museum in Holland. Unfortunately last year I didn’t used it very often, this year I decided that it will change. Last Friday I had to visit The Hague, and i thought that it will be an nice opportunity to visit one of their museum’s. When I typed “what to see in The Hague” in my browser the Louwman Museum didn’t showed up on top of the search results - unfortunately. But OK, after scrolling down the search results there it was - the oldest private collection of classic car’s, and it’s here in Holland. I entered their website and then I knew that I want to go there. I can already tell you that I wasn’t disappointed with my choice. This place was simply amazing. Collection is exposed in modern building designed by American architect Michael Graves. I immediately got the impression that the collection was created by someone who was really passionate about the classic cars. Every room showed even more spectacular classic cars. They have the oldest car in the world standing there. Car’s from famous movies like James Bond or Godfather. Sport car’s that participated in Le mans race, or simply cars in the shape of swan made in 1910! Believe me, the formula 1 bolid present there make no impression comparing to the rest of the collection. I spend there more than 4 hours and I could spend there even 4 hours more that’s how interesting the place is. If you ever visit The Hague find some time and take a look, even if you’re not a big fan of car’s. Everybody will find something interesting there, it’s a great trip thru history of motorization.
