  • He is from 1946, but only now has Visual artist Uwe Palmer his first major exhibition. In his hometown of Nijmegen yet though. And finally also the Valkhof exhibition once again on that is worth.

  • The museum contains a lot of different stuff that tell something about our history. Fine for a visit if you're a weekend in Nijmegen.

  • The Valkhof museum are actually 2 museums in 1 building. There are excavations of objects of the Romans but there is also modern local, national and international art to admire. Also for young children really like since history there.

  • Great little museum. Most of the info is in Dutch so be sure to enable Google translate before you go. They do give you a small printed guide in English so that helps. No audio guides but they do have free wi-fi. A great way to spend the day if you are interested in Roman Empire history
  • Excellent Roman collection, really interesting stuff there. Did not now about the tapestry room until I saw it, but it alone is a good reason for a visit.
  • Outstanding collection of modern art, but top pieces are not always on display, because of temporary exhibitions. The 17th century tapestries are amazing, albeit heavily restored in an old-fashioned way. Huge archeological collection, but you might get lost in the plethora of fibulae. Design of the building is second rate at best...
  • Loved the history. Lots of artifacts to see. Clean and bright. Lots of chairs.
  • Temporarily exhibitions (sometimes contemporarily modern art) combined with displays (paintings) of local history (roman times until 19 th century Nijmegen) and results of escavations.
