De Pont Museum

With regularly changing exhibitions, this expansive contemporary art space occupies the site of a former wool-spinning factory. Even if the museum is closed, it's worth the 1km walk northwest from Tilburg Centraal to watch Anish Kapoor's Skymirror outside the entrance, turning little passing clouds into works of art.
