The Gemeentemuseum Den Haag (The Hague Municipal Museum) is an art, fashion and design museum, largely renowned for its collection of works by Piet Mondrian, and by artists of the De Stijl movement.
The museum is housed since 1935 in a notable building, designed by the Dutch architect H. P. Berlage, close to The Hague’s city center.
The collections of the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag cover various subjects, including furniture, ceramics and architecture, with a noteworthy collection focused on Dutch and international costume and accessory design.
Nonetheless, the museum is world-famous for its collection of modern art, which ranges from the French Impressionism to Post-War Art, and including masterpieces by Degas, Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Kirchner, Kandinsky and Theo Van Doesburg , to name a few; the museum also holds the largest collection in the world of works by Piet Mondrian.
The Gemeentemuseum Den Haag organizes temporary exhibitions, guided tours, lectures and educational programs for children and adult.
The museum building, fully accessible to people with disabilities, includes a restaurant and two cafes.
