Museum De Buitenplaats

Museum De Buitenplaats

Contemporary figurative art and organic architecture

Eelde - Figurative art is characterized by recognizable subjects such as landscapes, still lifes or portraits. Museum De Buitenplaats shows and collects this figurative art from after 1945 - with emphasis on artists living in the Netherlands. The building and the garden act as a "frame" for the exhibitions and podium events.

Summer months

The best time to visit is during summer. In summer there is a sculpture exhibition in the garden and concerts are regularly held. Consult the website for the current exchange exposition. The exhibitions at Museum De Buitenplaats focus on contemporary figurative art.

Garden and buildings

The special shapes of the museum building itself are a fine example of organic architecture: masonry walls are interspersed with overgrown stone piles and roof gardens and borders merge into green outdoor rooms. The accompanying garden of Jørn Copijn is also worth a visit.

If you have time, make an appointment and visit the Nijsinghuis. Several rooms in this National Monument from 1654 were painted by Matthijs Röling.

  • What does Merel say?


    I visited the museum together with my mother. Museum De Buitenplaats is housed in a special building that is a whole with an attractive garden. The number of statues in the garden is somewhat limited. We found the entrance in proportion to what to see and the length of our visit on the high side. Nevertheless we had a good time here.
