The Outdoor Museum, Home to the best Dutch Masters

Welcome to the Outdoor Museum, home to several of the best Dutch Masters from the Golden Age. You can visit our museum in a picturesque part of the historical city of The Hague around the Dunne Bierkade. Almost all locations can be visited by one of our guides. The Outdoor Museum has an attractive program for both groups and individuals. The focus is on interaction, learning and experiencing. We focus on three themes: The Dutch Masters and painters from the nineteenth century , Royal The Hague and the old harbour district. You will find the Vincent van Gogh Experience in Jan van Goyen’s house.

The Vincent van Gogh Experience

Van Gogh was also a much-seen artist here. He first lived as an art dealer in one of the neighborhood’s small courtyards. In Jan van Goyen’s house we focus on the artworks that are related to the neighborhood. Here is a “neighborhood exhibition” of the greatest artist of the 19th century. Only reprints are exhibited, the exhibition aims to show the life of the artist, the paintings and the neighborhood in relation to each other.

Painters of the Romantic and the Hague School – Dunne Bierkade

The Dunne Bierkade and its surroundings have been a creative breeding ground for centuries. At first it was the neighborhood of famous painters. In the 19th century, the houses and studios of famous painters of the Romatic and the Hague School stood here. The founder of the Pulchri Studio, Bartholomeus van Hove, lives here, among others, alongside the painter of the Hague School Johannes Bosboom. That is why, among other things, attention is drawn to this in the Paulus Potterhaus.
