“An Ok museum, somewhat disappointing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Although its collections are substantial, this museum disappointed us. For instance, we expected some good Hieronymus Bosch. All there was were two poorly lit wood slates painted on both sides, which honestly I would not have picked up in a garage sale. There were a few good paintings, but most were second choice.

“Easy to navigate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I enjoyed my visit and found it reasonably easy to navigate around the rooms. A very good mix of artworks, from traditional to modern. It wasn't very busy during my visit which made it even better.

“Excellent place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

BVB has an excellent collection spanning more than half a millineum, but is not so large as to become overwhelming. I especially liked the early van Gogh's.
