Museum Beelden aan Zee
Hidden in the Scheveningen dunes, like a jewel in the sand, lies the Beelden aan Zee museum ('Sculptures by the Sea'). The museum focuses exclusively on contemporary sculpture. Beelden aan Zee is a private museum, run by a large group of enthusiastic volunteers. Museum Beelden aan Zee was founded by Theo and Lida Scholten in 1994. The collected works, mainly from the second half of the 20th century, focus on the main theme 'mankind'. The five bronze portraits of the current Royal Family are striking examples from the collection. The sculptures vary in size and are made by national and international, established and unknown sculptors. Some of these sculptors are Karel Appel, Jeroen Henneman and Igor Mitoraj. The collection held at the museum includes sculptures produced from a wide range of materials.
