  • Nice museum both old and new part. Balanced collection. With museum year card access. Parking under City Hall in the QPark though pricey! Nice museum café.

  • About once a year I visit this museum which regularly hosts interesting exhibitions. In 2017, there was a very interesting exhibition by the Chinese artist Qiu Zhijie total. Wonderful overview. But also the other temporary and permanent exhibitions are always worth it. Every time a party to come here. The building consists of an old and a new part. That one has well combined. Also a nice coffee shop to have a rest.

  • Quite surprising to find copies such as the Matisse! It is advertised as such but it is curious I found the collection quite disparate... beautiful works but also of the scenography deserves a little banal rigour because it goes in all directions anyway, the place is nice and close to the centre. Don't miss so. €12 admission. Including cloakroom and parking bike in front of the entrance

  • Museum had an extensive emphasis on modern works of possible period significance, but lacking interest or aesthetic appeal. The museum curator's selections appear to represent a strong preference towards social activist art, designed to advance the careers of their creators, rather than reflect genuine talent or forms of quality. If you are a resident of Eindhoven, bring your city pass (stadtpas) for a significant discount.
  • This museum is okay. The building itself is very beautiful and light, and they definitely have some amazing art works, but the building is also too big for one visit: really choose what you want to see, and don't try it all in one go. There are many art works that are complicated (and very little interpretation is offered), so museum fatigue is definitely around the corner. Bonus points: free lockers, gender-neutral toilets, fantastic museum shop with great gifts and original books and beaaautiful café with lovely terrace.
  • Carefully curated collection; divulges the history and contemporary state of modern art in an approachable manner. Highly recommended for novices in the field of art history and aesthetics.
  • Was here for an event in a special conference room. Considering how small the room was there was quite a lot of people that fit in. The sound was good. Only improvement that could be made is how to involve the people on the top-floor more (they tended to be ignored by the speaker like this)
  • Had to pay this place a visit because of school. Mixed feelings after visiting. It seems like the art is put on display more on a basis of modernness and quirkiness than actual skill and quality. Recommend you to visit on Tuesday between 15:00 and 17:00 to get free entrance.
