There are more than Rembrandt and Van Gogh in the Netherlands. As an artistically developed country, every city in the Netherlands has many museums you don't know about. Voorlinden in The Hague is one of them.

Voorlinden Museum, a niche museum in The Hague, maybe you are not familiar with the name Voorlinden, but you must have seen this art called “The Swimming Pool” on many social networks.

This quaint swimming pool is the work of the famous Argentine installation artist Leandro Erlich. On the surface is a swimming pool that is no more common, but staring for a long time you will find that no one is swimming inside, but a group of people walking freely under the water.

It turned out that Erlich used a 10 cm transparent glass to separate the pool from the upper and lower sides to create this blue underwater space, allowing art lovers to experience the underwater world without having to wet the body.

In addition to the swimming pool, you can also see the most famous works of the artist: Damien Hirst, Yayoi Kusama, James Turrell , Olafur Eliasson, Yoshitomo Nara, and Chinese artist Song Dong.

It is highly recommended to go earlier because the Voorlinden Museum is located in Wassenaar, one of the richest towns in the Hague suburbs. It has a beautiful natural environment with a private forest behind it, and the Dutch royal family and a large number of diplomats live here.

When you finish visiting the museum, you can take a walk in the back forest and enjoy the natural scenery. There is also a manor restaurant opposite the museum, where you can enjoy a meal that is greeted by the owner of the villa.

In addition, there is a very beautiful library in the museum that has a large collection of books, a cup of coffee and a book to spend a leisurely afternoon.

For a person who loves literature and loves art, Voorlinden is simply your private destination.
