Louwman Museum :: The Hague

By March 5, 2012Cars

Auto experts say the Louwman Museum houses the most beautiful collection of automobiles in the world. Add a Michael Graves designed building, and even the house is a work of art. On my list of must see places before I have breakfast. Since P.W. Louwman was a Dodge & Chrysler import company, I’m showing only those models. (Well, and one Cadillac formerly owned by Elvis).

Chrysler C8 AIRSTREAM DELUXE LEBARON TOWN CAR | 1936

Plymouth ROAD RUNNER SUPERBIRD | 1970

Chrysler TOWN & COUNTRY ‘BARREL BACK’ STATION WAGON | 1942

Cadillac FLEETWOOD, formerly owned by Elvis Presley | 1976

About:

The Louwman Museum is home to the world’s oldest private collection of motor cars, compiled by two generations of the Louwman family. The museum dates back to 1934 and now comprises over two hundred and thirty antique and classic motor cars. Experts regard the collection as one of the most beautiful in the World. The museum exudes passion. Each car has its own story to tell, its own contribution to history. The motor car is a mirror of culture.

The collection is housed in a purpose-built museum in The Hague, the city where P.W. Louwman established his Dodge and Chrysler import company. The building, designed by American architect Michael Graves, blends in sympathetically with its historic surroundings. The landscape gardens, designed by Lodewijk Baljon, complement the architecture of the building.
