  • It is certainly a different option on a visit to Schveningen, a super modern museum with very crazy sculptures. I particularly recommend a visit.

  • The (free) environment had more to offer me than the museum itself. Beautiful location in the dunes with appealing architecture, but the selection of artists and works of art did not appeal to us. For the price not very extensive and - sorry - boring.

  • I frequently visit the museum as I live close by. Strolling along the outside terraces with a view on the sea remains a special experience. Each new exhibition is well organized. I may prefer classical modern sculptures better than contemporary exhibitions. There are always side exhibitions to show a selection of the museum's permanent collection. Considering that the museum is run by a small staff and many volunteers it shows a remarkable professional level.
  • Beelden aan Zee museum in the Scheveningen district of The Hague, founded in 1994 by the sculpture collectors Theo and Lida Scholten, is the only Dutch museum which specializes in exhibiting sculpture. The museum shows contemporary international and national sculpture.
