Newly opened in 2012 on the south side of the Vrijthof, this museum combines local art, history and crafts to tell a compelling story tracing Maastricht's history and creativity. Artful objects made locally, such as antique pieces of silver, are shown along with rooms recreating various periods. The sky-lit lobby has a cool little cafe. The building dates to the 16th century and is where Philip II outlawed his former lieutenant Willem the Silent at the start of the Eighty Years' War.
