Bonnefanten Museum Reviews
Musée d'art ancien et contemporain situé au sud du quartier Céramique. Beau bâtiment de l'architecte Aldo Rossi mêlant architecture contemporaine et architecture classique. Au 1er étage, collection d'... more »Museum of ancient and contemporary art located in the South of the ceramics district. Beautiful building of the architect Aldo Rossi combining contemporary architecture and classical architecture. On the 1st floor, a collection of sacred art from the middle ages to the 16th century, a temporary exhibition dedicated to the master of Esloo (polychrome wooden religious statues) and a small collection of 18th and 19th century goldsmiths. On the 2nd and 3rd floor, a collection of contemporary art, with a rather limited interest. The visit is not indispensable. Entrance: €12.85/person.
Expo bezocht 'van eenling tot verzameling'. Zeer bijzonder en hulde voor het bijeenbrengen van zulke mooie houtgesneden beelden. more »Expo visited ' from loner to collection '. Very special and tribute to raising such beautiful carved wood images.
One of my favourite museums in the Netherlands. I particularly love their modern art exhibitions. I visited the David Lynch exhibition on this occasion and Bonnefanten once again did a great job working with an artist that is still among us - something I figure can be quite a lot harder then when the artist isn't "present". An exhibition worthy of travel and a showcase of the professionalism and creativity of the museum.
Great contemporary art gallery/museum. Lockers are free of charge, rooms all have air conditioning. Nice cafe.
