The Design of the Museum

The design of the museum itself is just as overwhelming as the immense art collection of the museum. A new structure by architect Abel Cahen has risen behind the old museum. The architect tried to use the complete environment, which enables the modern museum to blend in with the old museum, the sculpture garden and the adjacent river Dommel.
