“Museum with a Twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

What I've found special in this museum were the texts related to the art period on the wall in each room, written in very knowledgeable, witty but not too academic way. They have two originals by Jheronimus Bosch, and The Wayfarer in particular is lovely. There is a cafe with good choice of teas, coffees and cakes to refresh one when you become a bit hypoglycemic as I did. We've found entrances and where one can get an audio guide a bit confusing but apart from that it was lovely experience.

“Something for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Vast and spacious museum with a wide range of art on display including impressionism and expressionism. Good cafe on the ground floor. We were intriged by the 'cloakroom' in the foyer which itself looks like an art installation.

“An Ok museum, somewhat disappointing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Although its collections are substantial, this museum disappointed us. For instance, we expected some good Hieronymus Bosch. All there was were two poorly lit wood slates painted on both sides, which honestly I would not have picked up in a garage sale. There were a few good paintings, but most were second choice.
