Had a few hours to spare and decided to have a look around. Really interesting artist and a wealth of information in a beautiful building. Leave plenty of time for examining the pieces closely as the most interesting bits tend to be hidden in the background or to the sides of the main focus.

We had a really interesting time at the art centre. No originals but that didn't matter. I actually found the audio guide really interesting and just long enough. You could type in a code for the painting and listened to an explanation. In total if all audio is listened to it should take 45 minutes. Make sure you start at... More

This Centre is truly a vision of wonder and really makes one understand the religious beliefs of most catholic artists During the 15th and 16th century. Jheronimus depicted in all his works heaven and hell. Very detailed works of choices in life featuring extraordinary demons, punishments and the extreme glory of heaven. Everything is a fantasy in his art work... More

We were surprised beyond our wildest expectations. Most of his works are in this museum, although they are not the originals. The originals hang everywhere in the world, and you’ll never be able to see them together. Only here you can get a good overview of them, in this museum, where they show photocopied reproductions of his work. But please... More

Ever wanted to know more about these astonishing paintings from the 1500's? Be sure not to miss this remarkable exhibition! And the place is astonishing as well: an old church, with the exhibition in the tower. You can touch it all, it's all copies, and there's an excellent audio guide included in the price. Do take it!

I was not familiar with Jheronimus Bosch by name prior to visiting Den Bosch with some Dutch friends of mine. However, once you step into the former church turned museum, you will likely recognize the man's works. Starting at the highest point of the building which affords great views of the city, one is introduced to some of Jheronimus Bosch's... More

This museum is an old church that has been functioned to be the place to exhibit the artworks of Jheronimus Bosch. What are shown there mostly are not the original works. However, having the artworks of Jheronimus Bosch in one place really makes it easy to scrutinize his way of expressing ideas. When entering the museum one can have a... More

Good idea for cultural outing as we approach the BIG Jheronimus Bosch Celebration Y2016 (500 years after he died), this old church houses a very impressive copy of his most famous painting: The garden of Earthly Delights. See also 222.bosch500.nl

The art center gives a nice overview of the live and paintings of Jheronimus Bosch. The audio gives a lot of useful information connected to the replica's of the famous paintings. Interesting for people who love art or want to learn more of the beautiful city of Den Bosch.

The Jheronimus Bosch Art Center has a very large collection of works with an excellent audio tour. The location (inside a church) is also very special. We liked it very much!
