  • The museum is changed again since last time. the entrance moved to the front which makes checkout and shop more space. And the canteen could be larger. Definitely an improvement. Keep in mind that this is an old building with many floors and height differences so a lot of stairs. Obviously there are lifts. Back here, now for Pyke Koch. A fine collection of this painter. Also some movies about his life. Sometimes not understood by the hustle and bustle around it. This exhibition was a nice addition to our visits to magic realism in the MORE in Gorssel and Ruurlo

  • Wonderful exhibition about Pyke Koch and magic realism, also with Carel Willink. Beautiful Doll House.

  • last weekend the exhibition of Pyke Koch. Well set up, beautiful paintings and it gives a good picture of a tormented painter (had fascist ideas and was a while a member of the NSB) in a zwaargeestig era. magic realism in optima forma. Too bad there was a lot of noise from noisy visitors, whereby the audio and tv presentations (3) unfortunately is hard to understand. That laugh, but not to the exhibition to the visitors. Go see it neither before it is over!

  • Nice place. Especially when the sun is up, nice terrace. Good experience.
  • Great place. Right in the middle of Utrecht, has all kinds of exhibitions combining the old with the modern and the contemporary. Especially loved the Pyke Koch exhibition. You can also borrow a bike from them to further explore Utrecht.
  • 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.
  • The whole area of the museum space is nice to walk around, it build from the old church area and can access between within the museum without going out, nice for the bad weather, don’t miss the Pyke Koch’s exhibitions until March 2018
