We visited the Drents Museum for the first time to see the exhibition on American Realism. The exhibition is well organized and easy to view. The options in the gift shop are also good and varied. This was well worth the price of admission.

Nice museum. Have learnt that in the Netherlands they prefer you to keep bags in lockers in museums- as a foreigner, I was not used to this. Went to see an exhibit to contribute to a university class, and the staff were understanding about this....More
