  • The theme of the museum is very interesting but at the moment one can only visit a limited part of the museum. It is free of charge to visit during the re-building phase so it is worth while to visit....  more

  • There was a temporary exhibition on the power of masks. It was amazing, I enjoyed it a lot! The museum is very fancy and clean and yet it feels like you are treated like a star when you go in

  • Very nice insight of their collection in the third floor. The Superstraat part for kids is absolutely lovely. A very kind lady from the staff took me there to discover it, as I was leaving the museum without seeing it.. this space is great to see it for an adult, very nice museum concept... And also the museum has an excellent coffee.
  • Awesome museum located in a vert pretty building. With very interesting exhibitions. Suitable for children
