Hieronymous Bosch Art Centre Den Bosch Reviews
Nov 25, 2007
Hieronymous Bosch was a mediaval painter, famous today for his surreal, disturbing works about Hell and morality. most of his most famous works of art are scattered around the world - there are several in teh Prado in Madrid, for example. But Den Bosch, his hometown, is host to a huge collection of painted, good quality reproductions of his work.
The museum is in a former church, which in itself is stunningly beautiful, full of mosaics and stained glass windows. Against this background are set the reproductions and a collection of large models of some of the most famous creatures, demons and characters from his paintings. An audio guide is available in English, and offers a tour starting in the tower of the church and working its way down. It was very interesting. Guided tours with a person are only available in Dutch. In the basement is a recreation of Bosch's studio. There is a shop and a café. The museumkaart is not valid here.
