Inspirationally versatile
Exceptional collection and very hospitable,” stated a previous museum visitor. The alternating presentations of the ceramic and jewellery collections from artists from the 20th and 21st century continually amaze visitors. The exceptional exhibitions vary from Picasso to Dutch Design. Besides design exhibitions, the museum also organises various guided tours and (family) activities. In the Studio Programme, visitors themselves can get creative with a varied selection of accessible workshops.

Recommendable!
If during your visit to the museum you fancy a cup of coffee and an unmissable ‘Bossche Bol’, then the Museum Brasserie offers precisely that, and more. You can also enjoy a delicious lunch with regional dishes and a high tea in the covered inner walkway that connects Design Museum Den Bosch with the Noordbrabants Museum. The patio in the wonderful palace garden is an oasis of tranquillity that you can continue to enjoy after closing time. Just like the library (by appointment) and the museum shop, the palace gardens and brasserie can be accessed without a ticket. It is also a chance to view the exceptional building, which considering this response is certainly more than worth your while: “You have an exceptional collection. The building is also beautiful. Recommendable! J
