Right now, the museum is closed. This has everything to do with the renovation of the floors and the redesign of the rooms.
The new floors will not make the biggest difference; the big change is the redesign of the museum. We are working on a new permanent presentation. With exhibitions on the Breda Nassaus and Breda in the 19th century and plenty of activities, the museum will soon focus on a wider audience with plenty of attention for families.
The museum shop and café will be rearranged to provide more seating space. The patio will take on the character of a courtyard with a terrace.
See you in the spring of 2023!
During the closure we like to keep you informed with the special museum newsletter. Here we follow the progress, offer a look behind the scenes and present stories about special objects. Also want to stay informed? Subscribe here.
1. The Nassaus of Breda: castle, city and country
In the new permanent display you will take a trip through time and learn all about Breda's important history and how the city is closely linked to the House of (Orange) Nassau. You'll find out that the impact of that history continues to this day.
A family trail runs through the Nassau exhibition. Using assignments, surprising facts and provocative questions, children become wiser in a playful manner. Special interactive installations contribute to this even further.
2. The New City
The Nassaus were responsible for Breda's first flourishing period; the second flourishing period began in the 19th century. With the arrival of industry, the development of the city gained momentum. With paintings and objects and the stories behind them, you get a picture of this period. Here, too, is a special family tour for young and old.
With a major exhibition by Ruud van Empel, an artist of international fame and Breda roots, the museum realizes a high-profile opening exhibition.
The annual exhibition with special secondary education in Breda will also return to the renovated museum.
The renovation and redesign of Stedelijk Museum Breda has been made possible thanks to Dioraphte, Mondriaan Fund, Province of North Brabant, Friends Lottery, Zabawas, Municipality of Breda and Breda Marketing.
