  • Museum has excellent exhibits regularly in very nicely furnished rooms. Also the permanent collection about Alkmaar is worth it. The museum shop is extensive and interesting.

  • It is always a pleasure to come here. This time on the way from Amsterdam to Sneek. The combination of entrance, good shopping and pleasant Brasserie can serve as an example for many museum: so that set up! And then the exhibitions, also there very often nice surprises. You make it clear: here's thought about it. Like now at Emmanuel de Witte, in Alkmaar born painter of church interiors, especially, which he cleverly plays with light effects. And so there are bidstoelen (not Protestant, but soi) in the space that a church suggest and is also in that space on charming way with incident light played. We went to outside content.

  • What an amazing museum! Three in one; a permanent exhibition of excellent quality, by painters of the 'Bergense School'. Another permanent but more historically themed exhibition of the victory of Alkmaar city over the Spanish invasion in 1573, a turning point in Dutch history and for me a revelation, somehow explaining the calm Stoic, quietly determined nature of the inhabitants of Noord-Holland. And then a temporary exhibition, nicely curated, with some more interesting paintings. I had a lovely afternoon and will be back! Highly recommended!
  • I highly recommend this museum. For just 12€ for a family card you're getting a lot... There are art galleries with changing subjects, very well done, a permanent exhibition of the "Bergense School" (expressionism), one about how Alkmaar developed from ten farms to a city of 100,000 citizens and about Alkmaar's golden age. But the best, in my opinion, was the exhibition about the spanish siege. This was brilliant... Along a red line you're guided through history accompanied by small, very well made video clips (dubbed in English) combined with exhibits. So you learn how the people of Alkmaar made Spanish to dismiss their siege. I've never seen anything similar before, very entertaining and a must see. Last but not least, the staff was very helpful.
  • Mainly of interest for Dutch visitors with a nice exhibition on the Bergense School painters and the Beleg van Allmaar
  • lots of information about the Alkmaar vistory against the Spaniards during the indipendence war
  • Nice museum great collection and impressive exhibitions
