    Very interesting visit to the prison museum! It gave a good background of how the Dutch prison system started - makes one realize that even in prison systems - there's a definite, undeniable gap between the rich and the poor. A tour around the place also shows guests different machines / tools used for torturing prisoners for information. It's quite bizarre and interestingly morbid! If you're just walking around the city, you'll barely notice it! Take some time to look for this place and pay a visit.

    Probably the best guide in Den Haag! The ticket includes a guided tour, which is the only way to see the museum. The guide was excellent at speaking English and really involved the whole group and answered questions very well. The guide lasted just under an hour and flee by so quickly. It was a great way to learn about Den Haag’s history, and had so many original artefacts there which were kept in really good condition. Definitely a recommendation!

    The English audiogude was a little bit uncomfortable. I visited in March and there was no heater in the museam so that visiters can experience the real situation in prison. But it was really cold.

    Really nice and small prison. Visiting experience was great (had a lot to do with the very good guard and the funny guide we had).
