  • Friendly and helpful staff. Free Lockers available on the ground floor (throw 1 euro but will return). Museum is divided into 10 sections. Pyke Koch is now totally worth it. In addition to contemporaries. Introduced with movies about his life and work. The photo exhibition "the man next door" is also worth seeing. Well chosen theme. Go 2 hours before.

  • Centraal museum Utrecht, beautiful exhibition of Pyke Koch and contemporaries. More often seen but always remains particularly pretty to look at. Also nice work of Carel Willink and Paul Citroen.

  • The exhibition about Sarah Koch is nicely furnished, consists of three parts, each introduced by a video film so you the life course and the development of the paintings of Sarah good can follow

  • Do come for the main exhibit- the current one, the fashion exhibit, is really well done and pretty interesting. Half of the permanent collection is definitely worth seeing as well... as for the other half... it's probably me, but I don't get the curator, there's hall after hall where the art, to me, appears to have been placed almost at random, with hardy any determinable regard for period, artist or theme. Nonetheless, nice museum.
  • Museum was almost empty during daytime. Some exhibition rooms were too creepy to enter - no people, no staff, poor lighting. Also, if you are not interested in furniture design, baroque paintings and Miffy just like me, there's not so much left to see. That's the most of what they show in Dutch museums, why I was expecting to see something else hahaha.
  • An eclectic museum, combing contemporary art with roman artifacts and high fashion. Recommended to those who wish to try a different kind of museum.
  • a must go in Utrecht! impress building and collections! carefully designed orientations and nice intro flyer and audio guide! just loved it and would visit it again :) and also a nice courtyard coffee, don't miss it~
  • The musuem has a wide range of permanent and rotating exhibits. Two permanent exhibitions worth visiting are the large boat that is dated back several hundred years, and a recreation of Dick Bruna's studio.
