Currently has a good exhibition

Right now there is an Andre Rieu Costumes exhibition with all the beautiful dresses and jewellery of the sopranos who have sung with Andre Rieu. It is really cool to see.

Really interesting and interactive museum which worth a visit. Only a bad point, it closes really early during the winter.

The best thing about this museum is the building, called the Spanish government, which can also be admired by just drinking a coffee, without entering the museum. The collection has some guns and rifles from times when weapons industry played an important role in Maastricht. There are some religious sculptures, there is a large table filled with products from Maastricht... More

In dutch we say: a hap-snap museum, meaning: not a very professional way of chronologically, or thematically exposing objects. My partner liked the Andre Rieu exhibit.

I was in Maastricht for the day and decided to visit a museum (yes, it was that random). Came across this place. Went in (I have a Dutch Museum Card so don't pay for most museums) and asked one of the staff members/docents what the building was all about. He reacted like he'd been waiting for someone to ask him... More

I visited the Andre Rieu exhibit which was interesting, but a highlight was the chance to see a violin-maker working, and to ask him questions about his craft. He told me he uses birch or maple that has been aged at least 35 years, and that kind of wood is difficult to find. From start to finish it takes about... More

A very small, peaceful museum but over priced. It will help if you have a museum card pass so you can visit many museums as well. However, the displays in the museum are quite nice

Went to this museum on day of 35 deg heat. Were long queues and 8 euros per head to go in. Didn't go in but seemed to contain mainly Andre Rieu photos and info

We visited to see the Andre Rieu exhibition on a day when the temperatures were up in the 90s. Not only was it air conditioned but the staff sprayed us with water (they asked first if we would like this!) and also offered us glasses of chilled water to drink.

The museum has at the moment an exhibition about André Rieu. Good insight into the life and music of the maestro. On Sunday's between 11 and 12 a music performance is offered in the café. Different theme each Sunday. Nice to enjoy a coffee with vlaai on a Sunday morning.
