“Walking art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Beautiful art in the park with a very nice restaurant. Go there to relax, enjoy fine art and eat something scrumptious. Or just have a picnic on the grass. And it is FREE!

“Good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Took overseas guests and they thoroughly enjoyed it.. Good food and a enjoyably atmosphere around. Museum is not much but still worthwhile to visit.

“An Interestig Bit of History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

A visit to the museum, the beautiful grounds with the new bronze sculptures and the lovely quaint tea garden is well worthwhile if you are in Bloem! This is a little piece of the towns history that makes for a great morning or afternoon outing.

“It blew my mind!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is an absolute must-see in Bloem, with a divine garden, what looks like a nice menu and incredible local art - both 'old' and contemporary. I'll be back!
