This museum is part of the old city of Amersfoort. It's located in three old and historic buildings. I watched the Cobra to Zero exhibition. Nice paintings of the Dutch couple... read more

The guide I read promised me an art museum, yes there are some few paintings but the high light is the history section showing many sceletons and how the city developed

Nice stroll through an orderly, clean and easy access museum. However none of the exhibits had any other language description than Dutch. Big shame. A lot of art exhibits from local painter and some interesting town history. A bit pricey for the quality @ 12 eur.

The museum was okay. I thought it would have more information about the old city of Amersfoort, but there wasn't much about the city in the exhibits. The movie about the town gave much more of an overview of the history of the city. However, if you are an English-only speaker, this is not a good place to go. The... More

The many (narrow) floors of he museum display various exhibitions, of which many change all the time. The building is interesting in its own right, close to the historical hall of the city and an excellent stop on an easy stroll through the old city. Koppelpoort and t' Zand (good music and photography exhibitions in the Aegten kapel!!) very nearby... More

This museum is part of the old city of Amersfoort. It's located in three old and historic buildings. I watched the Cobra to Zero exhibition. Nice paintings of the Dutch couple Roetgering. You could also watch a part of the exhibition in the Mondriaanhouse. It's worth to go to this museum.

The museum is housed in 3 historic buildings (close to 500 years old) - which alone makes it worthwhile visiting! They are part of the so called Muurhuizen, and were painted as such already back in 1671 (Matthias Withoos). The museum itself was founded late 19th century. The collection contains over 24,000 items: paintings, objects (like a motorbike, and matchboxes),... More

If you really want to know about Amersfoort's past and history, this is the place you must visit. The staff is super nice and you'll find a lot of interesting things, which is sad that they're in dutch if you don't speak it.

This museum was interesting and rather charming. Unfortunately all labelling is written in Dutch, so we had to make our own inferences about each exhibit! While I enjoyed the museum and found it a nice way to while away half an hour, i feel that you get very little for the price, as the Flehite is very small. I actually... More

They have a nice collection of paintings and it's a pleasure to walk arround. However, it's a bit odd to walk suddenly from a room full paintings of Dutch masters into a sort of (permanent)exhibition about WWII. When we were there, half the museum was closed because of a renovation so this means that we will return to have a... More

The fixed collection has some nice paintings. I myself love the huge panorama by Withoos. The temporary expositions in general are great!
