I would say that this museum, easily to reach by public transport, is a must. Well designed, in the dunes of Scheveningen, it is a real gem with their own collection and their fine exhibits of modern art, time and again.

Lovely place where you sometimes have to wonder what is and is't part of the exposition. Do not miss the permanent collection and the carvings. And do not miss the sculptures outside the museum, they continue on and next to the boulevard.
