Centraal Museum

Centraal Museum Review

This vast and eclectic collection ranges from a 10th-century boat to a Viktor and Rolf A-Bomb coat, and from Golden Age paintings to minimalist home furnishings. What you see depends on the theme of the current temporary exhibitions, but of the permanent displays, don't miss the Utrecht Boat, the complete 1,000-year-old wooden hull of a ship, excavated from a nearby riverbed in 1930, which has survived remarkably intact. The museum also has a collection of Golden Age art and artists from the Utrecht school. Across the square, modern-art lovers will make a beeline for the Gerrit Rietveld Wing, focused on the most famous of all De Stijl architects and designers. There is a reconstruction of his studio and lots of original Rietveld furniture.
