Overview
More
Stedelijk Museum Breda is the museum for cultural legacy and history of the city of Breda and for contemporary visual culture. Our key concepts are perception and imagination, attention and connection. We take a curious approach to the world and ask the visitor: what do you see? And, how does that trigger your imagination? We believe that conscious interest is the source of knowledge and inspiration, leisure and pleasure. In all we do, we seek to connect to partners within and outside the city. The museum has a permanent exhibition From castle to station that walks you through the rich history of the city of Breda. Special objects, documents, paintings, video and other art forms illustrate the development of the city from a small settlement to the 9th largest city of the Netherlands. The museum hosts temporary exhibitions several times a year. The museum attracts a wide variety of visitors, both nationally and internationally. From lovers of history, military history and religious art to fans of digital art forms and graphic design. Practical information can be found on the website. Please note that opening times may vary.

The museum had an exhibition of four modern interpretations of Jeroen Bosch's "Tuin der Lusten" (garden of lusts), which were engaging and excellent, besides their standard of exhibition. Useful and informative, suitable for children.

We were @breda for the weekend and found this museum. Really interesting work! there are some videos, possibility to do a VR experience; All texts aren't translated into English but it was not a blocking point for us as the art is good :-)

This museum has an English name, but don't get fooled into thinking it is geared towards an international public. Most written texts with works of art are only in Dutch. That should be fixed! Then the art work itself is a beauty for the eye,...More

The Museum of the Image, known locally as MOTI, focuses on Dutch graphic design. It is itself a nicely designed, modern museum but there's too little translated into English, in my view, meaning what could have been an outstanding place to visit struck as being...More

Fantastic exhibit featuring four Dutch contemporary artists. Thoughtful and provocative. Their permanent collection has a focus on digital media which is very interesting.

We did enjoy our visit. We were welcomed warmly and enthusiastically on entrance and given an explanation of what we were to see. The trouble was that with no English in the curation it became almost completely incomprehensible and bordering on the wacky. We simply...More

Great art, beautiful building. But take your time, like a whole afternoon. Easy to reach by foot from Breda station if you do not mind a 5-10 minute walk. Or get in a bus that stops at 'Vlaszak'.
