The Stedelijk Museum Breda (municipal museum of Breda) is unique in the way that it combines the city's heritage with the present day. The museum gives art lovers a fresh look at art in a beautiful location in the historical centre of Breda. Exploring the permanent exhibition Van kasteel tot station is the ideal way to spend a few hours on a visit to the Nassau town. Previous visitors had the following to say: "A nicely laid out modern municipal museum in a historical building" and "They've really managed to be original in the way that they present the history of Breda!".

An interesting conflict
The museum, which has been open since June 2017, was born out of a merger between MOTI (Museum of the Image) and Breda's Museum. The collection that has sprung up as a result of the merger is hugely varied, with objects and art from the middle ages through to today, an important religious art collection and a comprehensive collection of digital and graphic art. The diversity creates a real friction in the collection, a friction that is particularly noticeable in the temporary expositions. One visitor remarked: "It is a particularly special concept, the city's heritage combined with digital art."

Enjoy the city
The museum is housed in a national monument, the Oudemannenhuis, one of the oldest buildings in Breda. Under a kilometre's walk from the museum you will find a large number of heritage locations, perfect for strolls through the city. What about de Grote Kerk (one of Brabant's four most popular monuments), de Grote Markt, the Netherlands' second oldest beguinage, Breda Castle, the Lutheran and Walloon Church and the historical Spanjaardsgat?

The museum often links its seasonal activities to events being held in the city, such as BredaPhoto and Graphic Matters, making it a true museum for the city. And all just ten minutes from Breda's central railway station.
