Just arriving on the square to the entrance of the museum takes your breath away. Beautiful Middle-Ages architecture. There are 5 floors, but the top floor are only toilets. There's a lift for less abled people to get to the top floor. On every floor there's a different exibition with a theme. There's no information overkill which makes you want... More

To me, having grown up in Zeeland and now living in London, it is great to see the history of the place including its traditional clothing that you do not really see on the streets anymore. It shows the rich history this place has and its role during the golden age of the Netherlands.

The permanent exhibitions are worth seeing, and the seasonal ones have always been of interest too. The collection of paintings is wonderful and the tapestries are breath taking. The entrance fee is worth these alone.

Beautiful museum, the Dutch know how to make museum work. Every detail thoroughly thought through. Easy to navigate your way around and the with the portable headphones every exhibit was explained in detail.

It's like stepping into the past. The square around the front of the building is lined with beautiful historic buildings. The museum itself feels like a castle . The permanent exhibit is wonderful and the temporary ones were well chosen. The gift shop is a little limited . It is definitely worth making a stop at this museum.

We spent a good 1,5 hrs in this museum. It has a diverse collection with interesting highlighs of Zeeland tradition. And all if this is presented in an excellent way, combining modern and historic art.

It's quite okay. Was happy to have seen it, especially the movie about the province of Zeeland (where I was born) , the history and what it is like now. The carpets from the 1500's are also very impressive.

Please save your money and avoid this museum.I was actually born in Middelburg and thought I must have a look. There is hardly anything worthwhile to look at. The only interesting aspect is the building itself and its location. You certainly will not find anything of note regarding the county of Zeeland.

If tapestries are your thing you'll be in heaven in this portion of the Abbey converted to a museum. If they aren't there are a hundred other bits of museum lore you may find engaging. It is a small museum, not crowded, very walkable, and if you love museums you'll adore this one.

This is the most imaginatively-curated museum I have been to for many years. It is not too big to enjoy, but you can see most things in the space of an hour or two (depending on your level of interest). From the ground up (as I remember) 1st floor - costume from the area through the years - both national... More
