Een schilderij uit het thema 'Dromen van Dordrecht, de stad door de eeuwen heen'
Dordrecht, the city by the waterside, was popular with 17th-century cityscape painters

Starting in 1842 with just one painting, the Dordrechts Museum has acquired an internationally renowned collection since. It covers over six centuries of painting, from the 16th century to the present day.

Ary Scheffer

The Dordrechts Museum is a favorite for fans of Ary Scheffer, one of Dordrecht’s greatest painters. The Dordrechts Museum has the world’s largest collection of Scheffer’s art. The collection is very varied, including historic, modern and contemporary art. You can also discover art by other painters from Dordrecht, such as Aelbert Cuyp and Ferdinand Bol. The collection’s more recent artists include Jan Toorop, Pyke Koch, Karel Appel and Armando.


The Dordrechts Museum organizes activities for visitors of all ages. The tours, workshops and masterclasses are tailor-made for current exhibitions.


The Dordrechts Museum considers it important for everyone to realize that art is also for them. For people suffering from dementia and their loved ones, we have a monthly Amazement Tour at the museum. The museum also offers guided tours for the deaf and hard of hearing Dutch Sign Language, given by deaf guides.
