The aim of the Valkhof Museum is to spread knowledge of history, heritage and art. The collection consists of archaeological artifacts and both historic and modern art. Archaeological finds provide details of human life in the area.

With its impressive collection, Valkhof Museum illustrates 5,000 years of history. See how art and history affect our worldviews. This museum tells visitors more about Nijmegen’s rich history and its zenith in the Roman era and the times of Charlemagne. In the Roman Empire, Nijmegen was a city on the Lower German Limes, its borders, which are now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The museum holds major artifacts from Nijmegen’s history. The museum also hosts regular temporary exhibitions on art, history and the sciences. Valkhof Museum is located in an innovative building designed by architect Ben van Berkel, in the historic Valkhof park in the city center.

Valkhof Museum also looks after the Museum Kam monument, on a street that bears its name. This building is currently being renovated and will open to the public one day a week on completion.
