Museum
“The Museum Mayer van den Bergh evolved from a private museum into the municipal museum it is today. It is still the gem it once was. Museum Mayer van den Bergh is built around the collection of one man, and that is still its essence, its strength and its attraction. Even so, in the course of more than a century, a lot has changed, behind the scenes as well. The Museum Mayer van den Bergh was the first museum in the world to be built around a single collection – with a special focus on Bruegel.”
