Home museum

Helene Kröller-Müller had a dream to create her own ‘museum-home’. With her wealthy husband’s money and help from an advisor, she purchased over 11,500 art objects. The Kröller-Müller Museum opened its doors in 1938 in the Hoge Veluwe National Park.

Van Gogh and the Sculpture Garden

There’s plenty to see at the Kröller-Müller Museum, but these are the two particularly interesting highlights:

  • The Van Gogh collection: the largest privately owned collection of Van Goghs in the world (not counting the collection of the Van Gogh family itself).
  • The sculpture garden: has grown into one of the largest of Europe. Surrounded by the De Hoge Veluwe National Park, it’s wonderful to see how the sculptures, garden and park merge together.
