    Loved this place. The picture illusions on the top floor are a must. Wonderful building, stunning chandeliers, timeless art.

    Really nice collection of his art. Also nice stuff for kids on the top floor. Take your time! One hour is not enough to see everything so be there no later than 15:30

    Best museum! Amazing selection of his work and some great optical illusion interactions on the third floor. Would definitely come back :D

    As a huge Escher fan, this was a marvelous treat! Many of his original chalk bases are included, and the interactive exhibit on the third floor included an IMAX-style visual experience, about 10 minutes long, that captured the mindset of Escher in a new way. Highly recommended!

    I've been fascinated by Escher since I was a child, a restaurant my family and I used to go to when I was a child had some of his illustrations/wood cut outs on their walls and I would be completely mesmerised by these optical illusions. It was such an experience to finally go to this museum and see all of his works. Great day!
