A few shots from this impressive museum in Maastricht, situated on both sides of the Meuse/Maas river in the south-eastern part of the Netherlands, on the Belgian border (with both Flemish and Walloon region within easy reach from the city centre) and near the German border.
The Bonnefantenmuseum combines, in a building by Aldo Rossi, private and public collections with both old master painting and sculpture as cutting edge contemporary art. Furthermore it hosts the so-called Rijksmuseum Maastricht and collections focused both on medieval applied arts (Neutelings) as on mainstream contemporary (Vandenhove).
