Panorama Mesdag displays the 120 meter long and 14 meter high panoramic painting of Scheveningen from 1881, by the Dutch painter Hendrik Willem Mesdag. Because the painting is round, the observer is not in front of the painting, but inside the painting. The painting is a panoramic display of the sea, the dunes and Scheveningen village.

Heerlijk dromerig, een uurtje genieten. :) Het panorama zelf is interessant, maar ik genoot het meest van de bijbehorende zaaltjes met schilderijtjes met zachte kleurtjes.

Klein maar erg bijzonder en fijn museum. Het Panorama is een erg mooi werk dat in een unieke presentatie is gebracht. Ook is er leuke informatie over de familie Mesdag en de Haagse omgeving. Voor kinderen is er de kinderspeurtocht. Aanrader!
