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.
