Visited on Thursday afternoon at 17h and was told that Thu from 17-20h they have a free entrance, so I lucky me. Exhibition was interesting and the space is great. I had the museum for myself which made my visit there perfect. I can only recommend the visit.

If you're in Tilburg, you should visit museum De Pont. In the old buildings of a historic wool mill, we were surprised by this, sort of weird, collection of visual art. Minimalistic setting and very original artists.

This modern art museum was such a nice surprise, nice pieces in a very nice 'industrial' space. Tip: It's for free on the 3rd Thursday on the month and open until 8!

You won't like (or understand) everything you see, but there are several parts of this museum worth going anyway.

This museum of modern art has a collection of it's with additional changing art. Look ahead of your visit what is on display not to be dissapointed. It is situated in a great historical building.

My second visit to this Museum. A couple of the permanent exhbits were still there and memorable; the main exhibition was disgusting. It is sick to think that a artist makes and exhibits something with sick socialist connotations. The exhibit reminded me of a derranged child pouring out his fantasies. The idea of organ experimentation and working with the mentally... More

Reasonable price to get in & we spent 90 minutes looking round. If you like and can work out modern art it's worth a visit. It might just be me but watching a wind sock for 15 minutes & looking at a stick man who's fat with a stick growing from his head is not art. Best work for me... More

The combination of modern art in this old industrial building is beautiful. My absolute favourite is Anish Kapoor, but Roni Horn glass sculptures are amazing as well. (go visit before 29 may 2016) My son (almost 16) really enjoyed the visit.

This is a great modern art museum. Due to the fact it is located in a former textile factory that had a special roof, the light inside is just wonderful. Exhibitions are wonderful.
