  • A great art gallery with both traditional historic old masters and wacky modern art. It's a bit of a walk out of the centre but well worth it. You can combine a visit to the ceramic centre and a walk ...  more »
  • A museum where I like to come. Excellent staff, Nice location and beautiful art. The exhibition by the Chinese artist is very worth it. Painting with gunpowder. Who consider that and then such a fantastic result.

  • 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!
