Looks old dont you think??
Can you send me a list of museums in Wassenaar and the surrounding areas. Top ten would be fine.
I am researching a painter with the last name Wassenaar. This is the only site out of over 300 that I can possibly get this information.
Thanks for your help, hope to visit soon also.

Re: Re: Museums
As Wassenaar is close to The Hague have a look a the Tourist Board site: http://www.denhaag.com/gb/
or at the general Dutch Tourist Board site: http://www.holland.com/ca/
Re: Re: Museums
Well, it should be a misunderstanding. Wassenaar is the most wealthy town in Holland, actually it has a reputation of a rather intolerant place. "Surroundings" are the Hague and Leiden, and you can easily find a list of museums on the site Pieter-Jan mentions, but I doubt very much this will help you. I have some background in arts, in particular, in Dutch painting, and I have never heard of such an artist.
Travel Tips for Wassenaar
If you do stay in this little get away they have to offer or you are else where in the town...realize it fast that things close down early. I mean 5 pm early....so if you are going to by food to cook , beer , cigarettes, I mean anything get it done early in the day because there is not really aanything in this town.
This is coming from a kid who grew up 20 min drive from NYC the city that never sleeps. The nice long bike rides we had buzzing around, I had known nothing about Dutch life or what to expect and in the back of my mind I had a strong feeling that Amsterdam had nothing to do with what goes on in the Dutch world, or maybe Amsterdam was the spectrum that I did'nt want to believe.
Also the train ride down to Den Haag was very nice, cause I got to see alot of the old windmills, plus I realized that this must be the flattist country in the world...and it might be possible to take a nice warm nap on the grass being that every where I looked seemed to look like a golf course.
If you’re researching what Wassenaar has to offer then the chances are you are considering staying at the nearby Duinrell campsite and theme park and you’re vaguely hoping that there may be a nearby bit of beach that can tempt your children away from the unwholesome thrills and spills of endless theme park rides.
Wassenaarslag (the Dutch name for the local beach, not the local ***) is a about a 10 minute car ride away from Duinrell. You could take your pushbike I suppose, but such is the frivolous nature of the weather in Holland you’re likely to end up as the practical joke victim of one of its light-hearted torrential downpours. Therefore it’s better to pay the 2.2 Euros to the car park attendant and be safe in the knowledge that there’s a dry car only a hop and a skip away from the rising flood waters.
From the first car-park (the cheaper one) you can either take the direct route to the beach (left, five minutes) or the longer route (right, twenty minutes) through the dunes. I‘d recommend the latter as you can then walk back along the beach after your stroll through the dunes. The dunes along this stretch of the Dutch coast are protected from the likes of us and you can only actually walk or cycle on the designated paths. I presume this is to stop them being eroded by ham sandwiches and fizzy cola. It’s a noble endeavour but the down side is that the paths also get shared by Dutch dogs as well as humans. Unfortunately the former, and possibly some of the latter, have no shame when it comes to defecating in public and you have to watch your step on the paths.
The beach itself is superb for picking up items that have washed up on the shore. These range from millions of beautiful shells and interesting bits of driftwood to a wide range of used sanitary towels and condoms. One of the reasonably-priced beach cafes near the car-parks even has a picture of a whale that was washed up on the beach. So be careful what your children absent-mindedly hand you for your inspection and approval, those whales can get a bit heavy.
This lovely church welcomes you to the village.The sky was deep blue when I took this photo,hopefully it`ll do it justice.theres a small garden center opposite that was full of Petunias and other great colourful flowers.
This is a beautiful village,right next to the campsite,you can just amble around and take it all in,plenty of colourful baskets and floral displays to pass as you go from one to the other.In Langstraat there were lots of great shops,selling well made gifts and chocolates....mmmmm.
