Interesting exhibition

A friend gave us the tip to visit this museum. The exhibition that was going on was very interesting. We didn't had a chance to see the sculpture garden, will do next time.

The most visitor-friendly museum where you can touch all exhibits and wander through the beautiful spaces with torso sculptures. Loved the space, the atmosphere and the sculptures. Definitely worth a special trip and many re-visits. The generosity of the foundation that runs this museum is exceptional.

The Depot is one of the most beautiful galeries in the Netherlands and deserves to be called a museum. If you are a fan of modern, figurative sculpture this is the place to go. Forget Amsterdam. Here you are received with traditional hospitality and courtacy. No crowds. There is a good restaurant and a sizable bookshop. There is an extensive... More

Well worth a visit, with lots of interesting sculptures. Entrance is free (you can get a booklet with info about the sculptures for a small donation).

This is four floors of sculptures devoted to the human being and parts of the human body. Sculptures in stone, textile , glass and metal you will encounter. Just wander about in this fascinating museum and do not forgot its outstanding garden.

My favourite place in Wageningen. Nice personal. Good location, close to botanical gardens. The area around is full of typical "dutch" houses/ villas.

Sculpture gallery Het Depot has many interesting sculptures, mostly focused on the human body, and I think a bit of an obsession with female body parts in particular. To me it is as good as, or even better than, Beelden aan Zee in Scheveningen, or the Lehmbruck museum in Duisburg. And of these, only entrance to Het Depot is for... More

Absolutely stunning. The gallery has a wide range of sculptures celebrating the human body. The main gallery is in a modern building spread over 2 floors surrounded by manicured lawns and extensive well maintained and varied gardens with large ponds and fountains. This gallery also has a beautiful restaurant for coffee or lunch with a patio outside overlooking the gardens.... More
