  • The museum is housed in a beautiful modern building, and the exhibition are modern and spacious. Especially the exhibition on the victory of Alkmaar is worth it. The exhibition uses video to tell the story of the siege to Alkmaar. Definitely recommended so.

  • For the first time visited the Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar. The year old Large Church is honored with works by Salomon van Ruysdael and Pieter Saenredam. On the first floor is an exhibition space dedicated to the Bergense School. In the basement is the troubled history of Alkmaar. Foresee a few hours for your visit.

  • Celebrating the 500th anniversary of "the great or laurenskerk Alkmaar" the museum offers a small expo or 17th century paintings of the Alkmaar church by Old masters. Solomon van Ruysdael (1603-1670) has around 5 painings or the exterior of the church on show. I didn't need much time to see the small exhibition. Pieter Saenredam (1597-1665) also painted the interior of the Alkmaar church. Other than this small expo there is the charming permanent collection of the museum.

  • Great little museum, deserves a couple of hours of your time. Even if the audio guide is not in English for the special exhibits, there's enough information in English for that not to be a big issue. Cafe and shop are worth visiting too.
  • Close to the station. Excellent displays, permanent and temporary. The history of alkmaar is well done, recommended for children and adults alike. The small giftstore, well stocked with excellent books and more
  • 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
