Alkmaar's city museum is smallish, but extremely well presented. One hall is dedicated to the siege of Alkmaar in the 16th century, whilst the other hall presents the prosperity of the town in the 17th century. They have some beautiful paintings.

It so happened I was the only person for the English-speaking tour. So, I had my own private tour of the special design exhibit, Wanders. The guide was excellent. This museum also has an excellent bookstore. This is the "city" museum and focuses more on modern (1950-80) art. It is every bit as good as the "old masters" museums.

For all modern art lovers. Encompassing collection . Exhibits order in a smart fashion. Next door to the Van Gough but is a attraction to itself.

My daughter and I loved this museum visit! The array of art and the organization of the rooms was conducive to our learning and appreciation. There is a great sense of play in many of the spaces, and the program for youth to partner with the museum and help us see art through their eyes was a fantastic idea and... More

I come here once every two months on average. Since the refurbishment it's not only an authentic museum with beautiful and informatie exhibitions but als a trendy place to have a cup of coffe with friends or business colleaugues.
