Welcome to museum Panorama Mesdag!
Panorama Mesdag gives you a 360 degree vista of the sea, the dunes and the fishing village of Scheveningen as it was in 1881. Step back in time and experience a unique view of our cultural heritage – the oldest 19th century panorama in the world on its original site.
This cylindrical painting, more than 14 meters high and 120 meters in circumference, was painted by one of the most important painters of the The Hague School, Hendrik Willem Mesdag, with help from his friends.
Besides the impressive Panorama of Scheveningen, the museum contains almost one hundred paintings by marine painter Hendrik Willem Mesdag and his wife Sientje Mesdag-van Houten. This collection offers the world’s most varied and complete insight into their art.
