Growth and prosperity of Breda
Discover the role Breda played throughout the centuries through the remarkable objects on show. Starting with a medieval altarpiece depicting the Sacrament of Niervaert, via precious glassware with a special connection to the 1590 capture of Breda, to a coal stove from cast-ironware producer Etna, and paintings by the artist collective Bredasche Kunstkring. Together, all these objects evoke a picture of the growth and prosperity of Breda: place of pilgrimage, royal burial ground, fortified city, and centre of art and industry.

In the city’s cultural heart
The museum is housed in national monument Oudemannenhuis, one of the oldest buildings in Breda. Within a one-kilometre radius of the museum, you'll find a host of heritage sites, perfect for scenic city walks. There’s the Grote Kerk Church (one of the official top-four monuments of Brabant), Grote Markt market square, the charming Beguinage, Breda Castle, the Lutheran Church, the Walloon Church, and the historic Spanjaardsgat water gate.

The museum often links its seasonal activities to events in the city - think of BredaPhoto, the Breda Month of History and SummerviBes - tying the museum inextricably to the city. And all that at just a ten-minute walk from Breda Central Station.
