Expérience fantastique: What a special place and great fun museum... don't forget to go to the top floor too and write with a goose feather..

Expérience fantastique: Today after visiting the museum here I found out that The Hague also used to have a zoo, opposite this museum. This exhibition Boeken Zoo is again a very well organized exhibition with plenty of information about books in which animals appear. I will be present again at the next exhibition.

Expérience fantastique: BoekenZoo was fun and beautiful. Beautiful old museum

Expérience fantastique: Very nice, versatile museum! As a book lover, I especially loved the space with old books. There were more books in the attic, which you can browse through as well. Just a trip back in time! The printing press was also open (Sunday afternoon) and the volunteers had a lot to tell. It was clear that they had a passion for the profession, as well as a lot of knowledge!

Expérience positive: Positive: Staff are very friendly and the gift shop looks inviting. Their temporary exhibit on the Orient was really great and very interesting - they had a lot of artefacts. There's a collection of Egyptian & greek artefacts on the second floor which was also very insightful. Could work on: While the bigger signs and descriptions are in English as well as Dutch, the plaques with all the detailed descriptions are only in Dutch, so if you're an English visitor, this might get frustrating as you'll end up missing quite a bit of detail, which is a pity. The exhibits on the top floor felt like an afterthought - just some miniature books but it's not a very inviting or engaging section of the museum.

Expérience fantastique: Great museum with a fabulous little gift shop. The permanent collection is interesting and especially the small books in the mini library upstairs are fascinating. These miniatures are always nice to see. Current exhibition on Hermans is really amusing and insightful.

Expérience fantastique: Booklovers unite! This is a dream for any booklover, even the kids are well catered for with the Lettertuin, activities and kid specific exhibitions during school holidays. The garden is also so nice, a good place to sit (with a book of course) and relax, you can bring your own lunch!

Expérience fantastique: Interesting and nice little museum. In addition to the 'Egyptian treasures', including a mummy of a child, you also have varied exhibitions on the ground floor. But the most special thing about the House of the Book is the Scriptorium on the top floor. Workshops are held here about printing art, where you can print things yourself. You can often walk right in here.

Expérience fantastique: Wonderful museum. Nice permanent collection and especially very nice exhibitions. The mini-books are great and the Rawie and Pesapane combination is brilliant. And all that in a beautiful building with a lovely garden. Definitely recommended.

Expérience fantastique: Gem! Secret codes, miniature books, medieval manuscripts, and an attic scriptorium that offers workshops for kids and adults. A mini Dutch Hogwarts! Loved it.

Expérience fantastique: Nice museum covering interesting facts on books/novels/artifacts from recent as well distant time. The interesting fact was learning about some set of books which used to be banned like ones which promoted racism, inequality, discrimination, etc... Definitely worth a visit.

Expérience fantastique: What a great exhibition "bad books". The tour by actor / singer Jake Credit was great! Told in a playful way; in short, a special performance!

Expérience fantastique: This beautiful museum Meermanno-Westreenianum does itself a bit too short by just calling itself 'House of the book' (that looks like Central Book House - which can now be called CB. But this aside). It is more than a house. It is a city palace with beautiful period rooms, filled with book jewels. A feast for the eyes, for your brain, even for your nose. And in the attic you will find the pleasure for your hands; the graphic workshop - the printing attic - where you can get started with lead, ink, paper and printing, and experience the old craft yourself. Incidentally, the 'Bad books' exhibition is a celebration of recognition and at the same time a poignant confrontation. Anyway: go and see!

Simon Edwin van Dijken 3 years ago

Expérience fantastique: In his life Baron van Westreenen brought together a beautiful collection of handwritten and printed books. In addition, he collected a variety of archaeological finds from ancient Egypt, and the Greek / Roman culture. All this housed in a historic Hague building with a beautifully styled interior and baroque garden. See there: Museum of the Book formally known as Meermanno-Westreenianum. In addition to the permanent collection, the museum offers current, dazzling and otherwise exhibitions about books, graphic / art / illustration design. Also: Tiny books and (studio) activities for young and adult children to see or do. ..or time to stroll around in a surprising environment.

Expérience fantastique: Unexpectedly fun. Also because of the interesting exhibition wrong books. From the permanent exhibition I like the interactive presentation "from lead to Led". As well as the mini library, filled with miniature books on the second floor. The museum is accessible with the museum year ticket and definitely worth a visit

Expérience fantastique: Amazing place for booklovers. The permanent exhibition offers an astonishing collection of miniature books (and much more.) But the real gems are the temporary exhibitions that change every three month. Every one of them I have seen was quite astonishing and I can't really close which one was the best!

Expérience fantastique: This is a converted booklover home, turned into a museum about books. On the ground level there is always a temprally expostion about a book related topic. The first floor is about the private collection of the previous owner. It ranges from an ancient antiquity collection of Greek/Roman/Egyptian statues and trinkets and a very large book library with old bibles, 15th century science books and novels. The temporary exhibition was about the illustrator Quintin Blake, who made pictures for Roald Dahl. It explained the reasoning of what he drew for various books, why he drew what he dre for the books and what the importance was in where to place the drawings in the various books. An eye opening experience! It also had some interactive activities for the kids and on the weekend they can go to the attic to learn a middle age writing course with quill and paper. The staff are very helpful, friendly and very willing to provide extra information. In the summer there is a lovely garden where you can enjoy some refreshments.

Expérience fantastique: We were lucky and saw the Quentin Blake exhibition which was really great! I did not particularly like the various exhibits on the first floor but I enjoyed the rest, the miniature books and the typing studio they have above.

Expérience fantastique: One of my favorite spots because of the large garden in the back and because the themes are always related to books and I love viewing books. The books and gifts in the museum shop are unique and suitable for adults and children.

Expérience fantastique: The museum is located at Prinsessengracht 30 in The Hague, about a kilometer walk from the central station. It is located in a fairly old building, probably once an ordinary house. I went there for the exhibition 'Porno on paper', about the history of pornography recorded on paper in the Netherlands. This country has had some heydays of pornography, as well as some periods when it was strictly forbidden to produce, trade or possess it. During those periods what was left of the last 'legal period' was destroyed after all. Writings from these periods in particular have been preserved. It is also striking that since printed pornography was legalized for the last time in the mid-1960s, visual culture has also begun to advance. Over the last 10 to 15 years, paper as a carrier is increasingly fading into the background. And exhibiting a website doesn't really suit Meernanno, the museum of the book.

Expérience positive: Really nice. The museum is inside of two old buildings that they are connected to each other. Every 3 months or so they have a different book exhibition. The lady at the receptionist super sweet and the garden behind was really beautiful. It includes a variety of miniature books that looks so cute and the cafe downstairs is so relaxing. It has a room for the kids to paint and play as well. I really liked it
