My passion is the art and the stories behind it. I love telling stories. Previously as an editor for the national Dutch television but now as a professional art historian.

The museum was well designed and the audio tour took us to the most significant works. There was time to enjoy the other art as well. The gift shop offered quality and interesting items from which we partook!
