Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar
Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar is one of Holland’s oldest museums, housed in one of Alkmaar’s newest buildings. It is recently modernised: With a fresh, attractive front, entrance and shop, a spacious Museum Café and two innovative museum presentations: Victory! The Siege of Alkmaar in 1573, Alkmaar’s Golden Age and Portrait of Alkmaar.
It is an inspirational place to meet, with an array of galleries offering visitors a wide range of art and historical presentations, fascinating exhibitions and a busy programme of activities. Alkmaar's civic museum is above all about experiencing and discovering the art and history of the city and the people who lived here.
Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar offers a full programme of interesting temporary exhibitions. These focus on aspects of the collection or feature particular subjects in exciting presentations. Visitors are actively engaged through both form and content, while special attention is paid to younger visitors.
