The Bonnefantenmuseum features a 28m tower that's a local landmark. Designed by Aldo Rossi, the museum opened in 1995, and is well laid-out with collections divided into departments, each on its own floor: Old Masters and medieval sculpture are on one floor, contemporary art by Limburg artists on the next. A dramatic sweep of stairs beckons visitors to both floors. Make time for the world-class Neuteling collection of medieval art.
Space is devoted to special exhibitions and shows. The museum is the patron of the major biennial Vincent Van Gogh Award for Contemporary Art in Europe.
