Public transportation


The museum is located next to The Hague Central Station and is also easily reached via tram and a number of city and intercity buses. Walking from the station to the museum takes just two minutes on foot. Access the station hall via the exit on Anna van Buerenplein and cross the square. Head through the narrow passageway directly opposite; this will lead you to the Royal Library’s main entrance. The entrence to the museum is on the first floor.


By car


The museum is close to the exit roads leading to Rotterdam, Utrecht and Amsterdam. At the Prins Clausplein junction, join the A12 motorway in the direction of The Hague (the so-called ‘Utrechtse Baan’) and stay on it until you reach exit 2 (P-Centrum).


Parking is easiest in the Central Station / New Babylon parking garage next to the museum. For more information, go to Qpark website.


Due to the arrival of our new neighbours, de Tweede Kamer, our entrance may be less accessible due to special occasions. You can also always reach the museum through the entrance of the National Archives (Prins Willem-Alexanderhof 20).
