I visited this museum for a special photo and video exhibition on the very actual issue of the refugees. Especially the video island of all together was very impressive. Be quick this specific exhibition ends July 31st!

Cheap, and they have a new exhibition every few months. Usually modern art. Very interesting. Recommended when you are in Hilversum, but do not go out of your way to visit it if you are in another part of the Netherlands.

We went here to see a photo 'battle' between two photographers that went to Guatemala together and each took pictures in his/her own way. The colors are splendid. We enjoyed seeing this exhibition.
