Collection compiled by two generations of the Louwman family
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 fifty 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.
