I’ll be honest: I initially visited this site mostly for the novelty factor. So I was taken aback by how moving I found the panorama. It’s very clear how dearly Mesdag and his wife loved Scheveningen from their painting, and the fact the panorama been maintained for so many years after their deaths is a testament to its poignancy.

Mesdaag's amazing 360-degree painting. It made you dizzy.and a feeling so real that you think the painting is alive and you are part of the life of the painting. Amazing. The beauty and details of life "once upon a time" cannot be described.

It is an impressive panoramic beach picture (painting) that uses sounds to depict life at that time. Absolutely worth seeing! Panometers are used in a similar way in Germany. We almost liked this exhibition here in the Netherlands better!

It is just a mesmerizing experience. Brought my family on this trip, they loved it as well.

It's really worth it... the view takes your breath away! It seems real
