The museum is in a former castle. The bridge, stairs, ceilings and floors are very nice. There is not a lot of art, but what is there is worthwhile. They could think more about non-Dutch speaking guests. They are on their own now. The movie...More

The castle is beautiful and worth a visit on its own. The collection on display shows an overview of the career of Carel Willink. Make sure you fetch the brochure at entry since there are no information signs at the exhibition.

Museum More (Castle of Ruurlo) is beautifully restored and very tastefully designed. It also houses a very nice collection of a famous Dutchman, Carel Willink, a modern artist. Unfortunately, I cannot share photos of the art, but I am sure you can find it elsewhere....More

Well, to keep it simple : As a guide I would just love to take international visitors to this place and maybe combine it with other modern art collections in the Netherlands. This private collection of works by Carel Willink is astonishing and should not...More
