    Discover the museums

Welcome to our brand-new website is a great place to start discovering what the museums of the Netherlands have to offer. The Netherlands is a relatively small country with hundreds of museums, an excellent public transport network, good roads, and more than 35,000 km of cycle paths. Every museum is therefore easily accessible, how you get there is up to you! You needn’t travel far, as there is always a museum nearby. You may have already heard of some of our museums, and many, many more remain to be discovered. From Old Masters to modern art, from medieval castles to modern science, at least one museum is bound to be exactly what you’re looking for. Combine your museum visit with sightseeing or shopping in a city or town center, or with a stroll in a park. The Netherlands is small but varied.
