Panorama Mesdag is a panorama by Hendrik Willem Mesdag. Housed in a purpose-built museum in The Hague, the panorama is a cylindrical painting (also known as a Cyclorama) more than 14 metres high and about 40 metres in diameter (120 metres in circumference). From an observation gallery in the centre of the room the cylindrical perspective creates the illusion that the viewer is on a high sand dune overlooking the sea, beaches and village of Scheveningen in the late 19th century. A foreground of fake terrain around the viewing gallery hides the base of the painting and makes the illusion more convincing. A tour guide will guide you through the museum.
Following this, you’ll visit the Mesdag Collection, where you can admire the exceptional 19th-century art collection of the famous seascape painter Hendrik Willem Mesdag and his wife Sientje Mesdag-van Houten. Since 1887 this collection, which contains a large number of masterworks from the French Barbizon School and the Haagse School, has been on exhibit in the delightful private museum of the Mesdag family. This tour will be guided.
