Little did I know that 1H away from Amsterdam, The Hague has a world class car Museum, actually one of the best collections I've seen. I spent a few hours in Den Hagg to see other things, but Louwman Car Museum was where I spent the most time.
The story is that a successful Dutch businessman started collecting cars, and eventually realized that he needed a better place to house them, so he built this extensive multiple building, multiple story museum to house them all. The collection is heavily weighed towards older rare cars:
very old steam powered car
face to face sitting car, using candles for lights
another very strange design, makes you wonder why it didn't catch on :)
the controls look 'interesting'
unusual steering control
boat car, which apparently was a poor boat and a poor car
not a boat car, but pretending to be one
another steam car
the first hybrid gas/electric car, some 90 years before the prius!
looks like every crazy thing has been tried
6 wheel drive formula 1!
And after 4H, the visit was over, just as the museum was closing. It was definitely a museum that was one of a kind.
