  • A very special exhibition. The pictures, results are beautiful. The most impressed on me the hanging Silk cloths. I can't imagine how he knows what the result of his actions. Fireworks detonate, powder, etc, the other is culture. That makes me also wonder in people who have something in bronze. What did you want, why do you which pieces of sharpened, bijgepoetst.

  • The Bonnefantenmuseum is pretty nice, i liked the old paintings at the first floor. However, I didn't like the modern art, but that's just my personal opinion.
  • Spacious museum with both modern art and some renaissance paintings. The building itself has some special looks as well.
  • Good collection, pleasant building. Fun to visit.
  • Grayson Perry exhibit is amazing!
