Spend a wonderful time looking at the marvelous paintings that once were part of the Paul Rijkens Collection. Rijkens founded Unilever, made the Bilderberg Meetings happen, and was a great patron and connoisseur of contemporary art. Really worth a visit! It's a nice museum, and very well organized now under Covid-19 rules!

Alkmaar is generally a very charming place, with tourists often coming on the day of cheese market. That's really very touristy. Go there only if you are a REAL tourist. For the rest Alkmaar is lovely and the Stedelijk Museum has great exhibitions and a very interesting collection. The top floor has a good collection of artists from the Bergen School. And some of the temporary exhibitions were really great! If you go to Alkmaar, check it out.

This small but interesting temp.expo offers paintings by the 3 generations of the artist family Toorop. Jan Toorop (Java 1858-Den Haag 1928),Charley Toorop (Katwijk 1891- Bergen N-H 1955) and Edgar Fernhout (Bergen N-H1912-Bergen N-H1974) used a wide variety of styles and techniques. The permanent collection offers a fine selection of old masters and modern art of the so called" Bergense School"

Always difficult to review a museum/art gallery, because the exhibitions change and tastes differ. The current exhibition upstairs of art by the Bergen School didn’t much appeal to me, but it was well laid out and there was plenty of space to appreciate the paintings. There is a good permanent interactive exhibition on the 16th century Spanish siege of Alkmaar, and an interesting selection of paintings and artefacts from the “Golden Age”. Plenty of well fed burghers and their sombre wives.
