We rented headsets and spent about two hours in this beautiful museum. The art is beautiful, but so is the buildings architecture. It is totally awesome.

This fine building has so much history. It's a shame that Hitler was not accepted here either if the times he applied. Perhaps the world's history would be different. Worth a visit to walk where Hitler walked.

So it is not the most prepossessing of frontages and is not given the prominence it merits. You could easily think on entry that you have stumbled in to a university building and you are in the wrong place. BUT ! it's a really great...More

I absolutely loved the beautiful art pieces on display ranging from Rubens, Ruisdael and of course Bosch. Since the museum is not stampeded by hundreds of people, it exudes a sense of calmness as one studies the beautiful pieces on display. Bosch was clearly way...More

This is a small collection of truly outstanding works. Among them are a number of excellent Dutch and Flemish works by Ruisdael, Rubens, and others. It is right next door to the Secssion House, so stop by.

Even though not too touristy and rather small, this museum houses some real masterpieces, especially from some of the best 15th-18th centuries painters, including a spectacular triptych by Bosch. Don't miss!

I've long admired Bruegel and Bosch and loved seeing some of their most important paintings in this plain but exquisite space. It's on the top of an art college which gives it a special quality.
