This is by far Dordrecht's best museum. Magnificent location (huge paid parking garage close by), beautiful garden, and a collection to die for. A must see for everybody with a love for art and history!

We came for the temporary exhibit, not realising what an excellent collection of Dutch Masters there is. Well designed museum.

We visited the museum mainly for the glass, but found the Dutch masters just as interesting. The picture labels give interesting insights in a readable fashion, but as noted by another reviewer, are only in Dutch. The building and gardens are atmospheric in themselves and...More
