Occupying several reclaimed and adapted buildings, and dealing with art, archaelogy, and history, this is a splendid venue. The collection of painting is not huge, but is well selected, with particular attention to the Utrecht Caravagists, Van Baburen, Van Honthorst, and Ter Brugghen. The modern art is also very good. Of special interest this summer and fall is an exhibition devoted to the Peace of Utrecht (1713), which combines art and history in an impressive fashion. The restaurant is limited in its offerings but serves very good salads and sandwiches. This museum is very much worth visiting!
