“Fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This museum has recently reopened after an extensive renovation and the addition of the modern art museum to their grounds and it is fabulous! The rooms have been made larger by breaking down walls and the addition of light domes in some of the rooms make the works of art seem even better.
I specially liked the exhibition of Lita Cabellut's paintings of Coco Chanel, Frida Kahlo, Mother Teresa and Anne Frank..

“Very beautifully renovated and reopened spring 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The museum is housed in the former Governement Palace of Den Bosch which dates back to the 18th century. It has reopened in spring 2013 after extensive renovations which also involved the integration with the Stedelijk Museum with its main entrance on the other side of this museum. Together with some other smaller museums nearby this makes it the museum quarter of town where you can spend many hours.

You can buy tickets at vending machines in the small building next to the entrance or go to the desk inside and get in line. For those with the Dutch “Museum Card” the vending machines are the fastest. Just scan the barcode on your card, press “pay” on the screen (for € 0,0) and get your entrance ticket out.

The former palace has some fine style rooms, the blue and yellow, with paintings from the 1500’s – 1800’s including father and son Breughel. There is a beautiful Stateroom which in earlier days was the chapel of a Jesuit Cloister.

Other rooms have the early Roman history, tapestry, art from 1800 to present, contemporary modern art and more.

All texts at the displays are both in English and Dutch and especially in the Roman history section there are a number of interactive screens for additional information.

There are some gardens between the buildings and a restaurant with a terrace overlooking one of the gardens.

There is an indoor passage between the two museums.

“Best museum in Den Bosch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Good museum in the centre of the town. In april 2012 it was closed because of restauration/repair work. Contact VVV before you want to visit (especially when this is your own reason of the vsiit in Den Bosch)
