About the Museum
Founded in 1866, the Gemeentemuseum was built between 1931 - 1935 was designed by Dutch architect H.P. Berlage.
The museum is renowned for its large Mondrian collection, considered to be the largest in the world. The collection consists of 19th and 20th century prints, posters, and drawings. The entire collection consists of around 50,000 items. It is compromised with works by Dutch artists such as Jan Toorop as well as works by Ingres, Paul Klee, and Toulouse-Lautrec along with other well-known names.
This unique combination of architecture, art and beauty makes a visit to the Gemeentemuseum a unique experience. It is an experience we are keen to share with as many people as possible, through our innovative exhibitions, museum lessons and special projects involving the people of The Hague; through our Wonderkamers, our beautiful children’s books and concerts; through the new additions to our collection that represent the very best in art; and through unique collaborations with non-profits and companies.
