We visited the museum on a wet and cold day. The exhibits all have interest for Utrecht but it is still generally interesting. The artworks are particularly impressive, going back to the 15th century.

I only went to see the exhibits on the religious war, which was fought between the protestants and catholics in Europe. This is a very interesting and educational experience. Plan on spending at least an hour and a half, in that section alone (exhibits 10 & 11). By the way, the peace treaty was signed in Utrecht, and this year (2013) they are celebrating its 300th anniversary.

This museum is not easy to find, so have a map of Utrecht with you. It is good on the history of Utrecht in many senses. It is also a museum of art and design. There are interesting temporary exhibitions. But unfortunately there are so many steps. To be fair there are lifts, but the place is really on too many levels to make it a pleasure to visit for someone with difficulty in walking.

Modern art gallery with some great Dutch masters as well as new art. Follow the gallery numbers to make sure you do not miss anything. Takes about 3 hours to see everything.

The museum has positive and negative things. It is situated in a very interesting building and that is already worth a visit. It has something of everything which is a positive thing as there is something for everyone but on the other side there was not specific thema and felt a bit of a chaos.. The information that comes with the paintings is little and it would be nice if there would be an audio tour for the paintings but also the building as it is very interesting and would like to have learned more about it.
