näkemisen arvoinen paikka mielenkiitoista historiaa
Sirpa Määttä (2 months ago)
Maksuton. Pysyvä näyttely aina mielenkiintoinen. Vaihtuviin näyttelyihin en ole kovin usein mennyt, mutta ne, joissa olen käynyt, ovat olleet mielenkiintoisia. Ehkä niistä etenkin voisi tiedottaa enemmän. Joskus on jäänyt käymättä sen vuoksi, että aukioloaika alkaa vasta klo 12. Liikuntarajoitteinenkin voi esim. p-tuolilla käydä, mutta ihan vaivatonta se ei ole. Hyviä tuotteita myynnissä.

Peace Palace

The Peace Palace (Vredespaleis) is an administrative building and often called the seat of international law because it houses the International Court of Justice (which is the principal judicial body of the United Nations), the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Hague Academy of International Law, and the extensive Peace Palace Library. In addition to hosting these institutions, the Palace is also a regular venue for special events in international policy and law. The Palace officially opened on 28 August 1913, and was originally built to provide a symbolic home for the Permanent Court of Arbitration, a court created to end war which was created by treaty at the 1899 Hague Peace Conference.
