  • Absolutely great! We loved the museum. Great collection in a wonderful place - this national park is just simply astonishing. In my opinion, the indoor collection they have - mostly paintings is of course great but The TRUE GEM is OUTDOOR sculptures and structures. Something that most of the museums cannot afford to have - just lack of space. And here you can see absolutely top artists contributing. What’s also nice is that the museum doesn’t feel dead - they work with artists now as well and commissioning new artworks. Maybe a good piece of advice would be to bring a sandwich for lunch with you (or there is Julia’s at the Arnhem station) because the restaurant they have has very little choice, almost no vegetarian options and gets very crowded in the lunch time so there is a big queue. And with a sandwich you can eat in the woods, looking at great sculptures such as Needle Tower… Overall - this museum is absolutely must-see👍🏻
  • Great day trip if you drive. You need to get tickets for the National Park as well, so make a full day of it to explore as much as possible. The collection is incredible, huge Van Gogh section along with lots of modern art, it takes about 2hours I'd say. The sculpture garden is great and larger than expected. The outdoor restaurant had good lunch dishes for about 15euros.
