  • Unfortunately, we were not very pleasant. The person who sold us the tickets went first once expanded together with her colleague through the postcards collection for someone who often came, ' sorry Madam I had you not seen ', was the excuse. Very unprofessional to two to help a customer and the other not to notice. The collection is great. We saw many medieval, Church, Medieval sculptures: sculptures from the Maas area. Also we saw pictures of Robin de Puy: Randy Like we will come back to to view other collections

  • If you are into art ant want to spend a couple of wonderful hours, this is the place to visit in Maastricht. The art exposed covers a wide period from middle ages to nowadays. From religious themes to modern art. Would recommend the museum for a visit.
  • The cafe in this place is really good. The food and drinks are well priced.
  • Lovely building, beautiful open spaces to really enjoy the art. There are cards at the side that explain the paintings in loads of different languages which is really good. There is a room at the top of the building which has music, beanbags and interesting walls. Great place to relax.
  • Absolutely not to be missed! A gorgeous building housing a great permanent exhibition and really amazing temporary ones! And not a bad deal for students with the 6 euro yearly passes
  • Few exhibits in what could be a really nice museum. Very nice building. The gift shop is large and had interesting items for sale.
