Military Government

Behind the beautiful Classicist façade of the old Den Bosch Government Palace you will find great exhibitions on the art, culture and history of Noord-Brabant. Following a large-scale renovation and reopening in 2013, the museum has added temporary exhibitions in the garden gallery and side wing in addition to the permanent collection.

Noord-Brabant through the centuries

The permanent collection embraces works from the late Middle Ages, such as ‘God’s Judgement’, 16th century works by Pieter Breughel the Younger, Spittende Boerin by Vincent van Gogh and modern works by Jan Sluijters, Theo Kuypers, Pieter Stoop and others. The museum is located on Verwersstraat 41 in Den Bosch.
