The Panorama Mesdag is the oldest panorama in the world still at its original location. Measuring an enormous 120 x 14 metres, it is a unique cultural and historical monument. The canvas is circular, which means that visitors stand in the middle of the painting (and hence in Scheveningen as it was in 1880). The view is unrestricted in every direction: the fishing village with the lighthouse, the North Sea and the beach with the fishing boats, the increasingly fashionable resort, the water tower and – in the distance – The Hague.
A day out in The Hague is not complete without a visit to view the Panorama and other important works by Mesdag. Combine your visit to The Mesdag Collection with a visit to this extraordinary work.
The Panorama Mesdag and The Mesdag Collection are less than a five-minute walk from one another, in a beautiful part of The Hague.
A Combination Ticket for the two museums costs € 17.50. Guided tours can be booked in advance.
