The museum shop in “Het Paleis Lange Voorhout”, dates from before the opening of “Escher in Het Paleis”. In 1995 a group of friends from the Gemeentemuseum started to help out with the running of the shop in “Het Paleis” museum. From a group of ten volunteers we have grown to a group of around fifty ladies and gentlemen who run the shop. The foundation “Vrienden van Escher en Het Paleis” was founded in 1996. The proceeds of the shop go to Cultural projects in The Hague, Escher in Het Paleis and the Gemeentemuseum.
With donations we have acquired the blue Day and Night by M.C Escher and Two Reds with Violet by Bridget Riley, from 2008.
Our building at the Lange Voorhout has a long history. Read about its origins, the Royals who lived here and how this palace became the residence of a permanent exhibition dedicated to Escher.
The history of the Kingdom of the Netherlands begins in The Hague. It was here on November 30, 1813 that Prince Willem Frederik of Oranje-Nassau, after sailing from England, landed on the beach at Scheveningen.
The MC Cafe is a pleasant place to take a break in your museum visit in the former kitchen of Queen Emma. Here, in addition to enjoying the extensive daily selection, you can also reserve a celebrationary high tea.
