This is an art gallery rather than a museum, so you won't find anything about the history of Dordrecht here. The lower floor has some nice local paintings of rural scenes and interesting write ups with an English translation. However, upstairs the information in the gallery is all in Dutch so you don't really know what you are looking at.... More

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

This is a huge museum with different periods in different parts of it and color 'coded' rooms. That gives every room a different feel. Very spacious. Mostly paintings.

Beautiful museum filled with some renowned Dutch masters. Once an abbey and asylum, the building has been adapted to house beautiful paintings and art from famous Dutch artists, including Rembrandt. The museum has large salons filled with art. One thing that was a little different was that some of the paintings were displayed too high on the wall to really... More

Dordrecht is the oldest town of the Netherlands and it has a very nice museum with contemporary art, but of course also a lot of old Dutch masters. So if you want to browse without lots of people standing in front of you, this is the place to be! Only approx 1 hr drive from Amsterdam.

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 provide a pleasant place to sit, even if just to enjoy a drink on the... More

I enjoyed my visit to this museum, at the entrance in the garden the had some funny statues... (made from a.o. glass). Inside they have paintings that date back from the 16th century to the present, all Dutch painters (so you'll have to like that). When I was there today they mixed the old with new glass art... a very... More
