Jan van Goyen

This museum in a canal house is part of a historic meeting center. The house is managed with the help of a team of volunteers.

During the Dutch “Golden Age”, The Hague was an important centre of painting.
In Jan van Goyen's historical canal house, some sixty of his landscapes, riverscenes and seascapes are on show, as a media presentation.
There is also a copy of his huge town view of The Hague where you can find the painter's house, that of his neighbour and colleague Paulus Potter and the house where the palace architect Van Balckeneynde lived.
A painter’s studio, period rooms and an old box bed are all part of the Jan van Goyen House. On the ground floor there’s a pub where the painter Jan Steen (Van Goyen's son-in-law) may have been a welcome daily guest.
