Louwman Museum Opens in The Hague

The new Louwman Museum has been opened by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix in The Hague. On display are historic cars and a large collection of automotive art, including paintings, sculptures and posters.

The collection includes more than two hundred and thirty antique and classic cars. Connoisseurs consider the collection, assembled by two generations of the family Louwman as one of the finest in the world.

The collection is housed in a museum built specifically for that purpose in The Hague. The museum building, designed by American architect Michael Graves, houses a large space for displaying the collection of historic automobiles and at the same time in harmony with the historic surroundings. The design made use of both modern details like Holland characteristic features, with steep gabled roofs, making the exterior is reminiscent of a coach. The beautiful landscaping is completely in equilibrium with the design of the building, and is written by the Dutch landscape architect Louis Balyon.

Louwman The Museum is not just a car collection. The collection exudes passion, love and knowledge of the automobile in all its forms. Each car tells his own story and delivering his own contribution to history.
