Housed in a former nunnery, this nice museum has a collection which spans several centuries. Focus on the city of Utrecht itself. Rebuilt atelier from miffy inventor Dick Bruna noteworthy, and all DeStijl items too. Good wheelchair access.

Enjoyed seeing fashion display descriptive. Plenty to see, although seemed no sense of order i.e. old mixed in with new ideas, paintings and objects - as though item had just been put in any space available? Opposite the Miffy museum, can buy a combined ticket.

The museum has lots of different types of art and temporary exhibitions. Could use some tlc in making the signs and logistics to get from room to room more logical. Lots of stairs (but elevators too).

Their collection is impressive -- look for the Dutch (Utrecht) Caravaggists. The display and exhibition spaces are curated in a confusing way so be sure to ask how to navigate the museum.

The museum includes both classic works of masters with ultra-modern exhibits. There's a Van Gogh here and several fine examples if the Utrecht Caravaggists, painters who went to Rome and brought back Caravaggio's chiarascura (light contrasting dark) style back to Utrecht. Don't miss the famous...More
