When entering, you go to the Citizen's Hall, this is a huge hall and there are Earth productions on the floor, there are also globes hanging from the ceiling. In front of you you see the Tribunal _ this is a wonderful statue.

There is a clock "The Oath of the Horatii".

There are Large and Small War Council Rooms, which are situated on the third floor of the palace. They are decorated with "Civic Guard Paintings" _ group portraits of members of the militia. One of the paintings there is Rembrandt van Rijn's famous "The Night Watch".

Many furniture, clocks and chandeliers date back from the early 19-th century, when Louis Napoleon became King of Holland and converted this place into palace.
