  • Very nice themed museum about the painter Escher. If you like him this is of course a must go, but I have to say I enjoyed it a lot even though I don't see myself liking art museums that much. His works are very hypnotizing and the way the museum portrays his life is very enticing
  • Centrally located , across from park with benches. And restaurants nearby. Recommend to bring headset so you could listen to the tour /narration of several of Escher's works , they also sell them at the ticket counter . There are lockers , bathrooms downstairs . Not allowed to carry bags/purses , they go in the lockers, you are given a free token to use the lockers . There is QR code to download the narration of the drawings , and also a QR code to listen to 20 minute movie on Escher's life of you don't /unable to sit and watch it . Very interesting , amazing . Small coffee shop also downstairs where the lockers/bathroom are gift shop upstairs .
