  • A nice museum, just outside the centre of Maastricht. Modern art collection that at the same time make you ponder and make laugh. Getting high surely helped many of the artists on display. Nevertheless it is good to know that a museum like the Bonnefantemuseum provides a platform for contemporary artists to explore and create their own unique ideas.
  • Great place to host a party. Not sure about the museum itself since all I did was attend a party here, but it was a good time. The bar staff were good and friendly and the security staff were also very amusing with a fair bit of banter as well. Everything was sorted nicely and the DJ provided some appropriate bouncing tunes for everyone to bop along to. A good time had by all.
