From Romans to Rietveld
City history, old art, modern art, applied art and design, and fashion: these are the five pillars that come together in the Centraal Museum. With so much variation, this museum in Utrecht offers inspiration to everyone.
The Centraal Museum is the oldest urban museum in the Netherlands. It started as an exhibition space in Utrecht’s city hall in 1838, but has grown into a museum with a very extensive collection of art and culture. From the time the Romans occupied Utrecht to Rietveld furniture, but also fashion designs by Viktor & Rolf and, of course, the drawings of Miffy’s father, Dick Bruna, are part of the collection. The beautiful Museumcafé Centraal is the perfect way to end the day and process all the impressions gained.
