About
Singer Laren is a unique cultural heritage with an American cultural heritage in private ownership. It consists of a beautiful boutique museum, theater, historical villa and a Piet Oudolf sculpture garden. Museum Singer Laren has a surprising and diverse collection of international visual art from the period 1880 to 1950. This ‘classic modern’ collection has given the museum the freedom to set up a wide exhibition policy. This collection was set up by the American couple Anna and William Singer, who received many friends in their villa in Laren. There were often artists among these friends. Anna and William themselves were also creatively talented. Anna played the piano and William painted. Together, they have collected an impressive art collection. Anna had the museum built after the death of her husband William. The Singer Laren sculpture garden designed by Piet Oudolf opened in June 2018. The garden contains sculptures by contemporary Dutch artists.

Loved the German Expressionist exhibition

Go and see it while you still can. It is a special and unique exhibition that gives a very good understanding of this specific art group.

Museum, sculpture garden, and more
Aug 2019
Visited a wonderful exhibition of German Expressionist works. Very well presented, really impressive. The sculpture garden is a treat on its own, with eye-catching, surprising statues and sculptures. The weather was favoring us, allowing us to sample snacks from the well-stocked restaurant outside in the sunshine, making for a day to remember.

Amazing collection in a small museum in Laren
Jul 2019 • Friends
Always great exhibitions of mostly modernism/impressionism/expressionism and works ranging from 1850s to 1950s Dutch art in an interesing old building with a modern add-on and beautiful garden with some less interesting modern sculptures. The only downside (for me personally) is the public, existing mostly of older people from the area. The shop seems also catered to this group, which is unfortunate. It would be nice if they organised something for younger people, and use more of their own collection in products in the shop instead of the same stuff ubiquitous in all museumshops in the Netherlands.

We visited this museum a couple of times in the past. Nice collections well exposed allowing to look quietly and good seats to take your time. Lovely gardens and coffeeshop so is the shop with a wide selection of artists.

„Out of office“
Feb 2019 • Family
Really inspiring collection of modern art out of many Dutch companies and public institutions. Friendly atmosphere ... also good to chill before and after the visit. The museum organises art workshops ... also for kids.

An impressive Modern Gallery, Concert Hall & Garden.
May 2018 • Couples
We really had not expected what we found here. What good fortune, what joy we experienced when we went, because it happened to be the last day of the Impressionist's exhibition, no wonder we found parking so difficult!

The entrance fee was very reasonable (€15 each from memory) for what was on offer to the viewer. We first enjoyed a light lunch but had not realised that if we had walked forward from the restaurant, there are a series of very pleasant small rooms to dine in.

Leisurely stroll to the galleries and WOW ...pinch me...there before us were some of the most exquisite paintings to enjoy.

There are many photos from previous visitors to the exhibition to see if you click photos.

The small town of Laren, we were later told, is an expensive place to live and the recently refurbished Museum - Concert Hall is a big draw. The newly laid gardens have been designed by Piet Oudolf.

It's a gem well worth visiting and this holiday, our second favourite Dutch Museum after the Mauritshuis in the Hague.

We came to see the special exhibit of the private collection of Fentener van Vlissingen family
May 2018 • Friends
This was a treat to see such exceptional art that normally is not shown to the public because it is a private collection. The exhibit was of a very high caliber with works of art from Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso to name a few. What a beautiful and priceless collection. We appreciate that the family made this available for showing to the public. Something you seldom see.
The Singer museum is a small local museum in the heart of Lauren and offers limited car parking. For this exhibit the parking was overflowing and it was difficult to find parking anywhere in the village.
