Not really my kind of thing. But the museum is very big and has a lot of very modern art. It does have a lot of very interesting pieces of art on display. When we were there, there was a lot of video art

Every once in a while I do visit this museum in the city of Dutch Design. Their international collection is excellent. Bacon, Picasso, Kandinsky, Mondriaan, Dumas, etc.,etc. Lots of variety. Installations, video-art, paintings, statues, drawings. Name it and it's there. Even the elevator has it's own funny artistic sound-atmosphere. Anyway, if you have a chance enjoy being there.

I visit Eindhoven frequently and always stop by this Museum knowing they have a fantastic collection. My curiosity started years ago when I saw their absolute top quality Braque still live in an exhibition in Tokyo. I haven't been able to see it again because it is, whenever I visit it's either in storage or abroad at some show.So it's... More

Nice museum with lot of contemporary arts. You would like it if you are a art lover, at least you have a creative mind. Go with your friends, otherwise it might get a bit boring - like any other museum actually! Good luck!

There are certainly a variety of different 'arts' in this museum. Some of them to me were a complete waste of time and not what I would call art, but the majority were excellent. I think there is something for everyone here, young and old! There were activities for the kids to get involved with, and there are explanations of... More

the location of the museum is very convenient. But the exhibition was not my cup of tea. And it is only for a special audience

As a born "Eindhovenaar" my only experience until recent was a mandatory school visit (when I was 12). You guessed right, I never visited again until recently. And what a surprise I got. This museum is worthwhile for all and even if you don't like modern art you can still enjoy the architecture of the museum. The rotating collection makes... More

We sort of fell into the Van Abbe Museum on a visit to Eindhoven last week. I love modern and contemporary art so when we saw that it was on our museum cards off we went. The architecture was really special as was the landscape which used the water well. We hadn't had lunch yet so a piece of cake... More
