Welcome to the Prison Gate Museum!

The Gevangenpoort tells the thrilling tale of crime and punishment in days gone by. Since 1882, the mediaeval prison has operated as a museum. It lies on the Hofvijver, close to the Binnenhof in The Hague.

The surrounding area is also rich in history. Join a city walk with our guides, take a look at the 18th-century Prince William V Gallery or visit the Historical Museum of The Hague, on the opposite side of the Hofvijver.

Over the summer there will be a guided tour in English every day at 2.15 pm.
