Guided tour of crime and punishment at the Gevangenpoort
Rijksmuseum de Gevangenpoort is an icon in The Hague, beautifully situated on the Hofvijver. In the 13th century, this building formed the imposing gateway to the Binnenhof. Several centuries later, it became a prison and courthouse of the powerful Court of Holland. Here suspected criminals awaited trial and defaulters were locked up. Today, Rijksmuseum de Gevangenpoort tells the story of crime and punishment in times gone by.
