Museum Het Valkhof

An archaeology and art museum in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

Nijmegen has a striking museum: Museum Valkhof. Under one roof you will find a top collection Roman archeology, but also modern and ancient art. From the glass building, designed by architect Ben van Berkel, you have a magnificent view of the river landscape.
 
Valkhof Museum is located on the outskirts of historic Valkhofpark with its ancient ruins. First, here was a Roman army camp, later, Emperor Charlemagne built his castle there. Now there is an ultra-modern building, in which next to the permanent collection are changing exhibitions to be seen.
 
The large collection of archeology tells the visitor about the Roman army and everyday life when Nijmegen was the largest Roman city in the Netherlands. You can learn a lot about trade and crafts, about living, eating and drinking habits. Lovers of ancient art will find a fine collection of ancient paintings, prints, sculpture and silver. This takes you back to the time of Emperor Charles Valkhof Castle and cultural prosperity of Nijmegen in the Golden Age. Surprising is the modern art collection: large, colorful paintings belonging to the Pop Art and contemporary Expressionism.
