Museum Hilversum and its collection

Museum Hilversum

Museum Hilversum is the photography museum of Central Netherlands, specializes in showing photography and explores the boundaries of photography by combining it with other art forms. Museum Hilversum amazes, touches and connects. The museum has a wide range of changing exhibitions and is a lively place for inspiration and meeting. In addition to the exhibitions, lectures, tours and master classes take place regularly. There are also special activities for children. Both the exhibitions and the collection are characterized by strong social involvement. The museum is partly housed in the old town hall, in the middle of the shopping center of Hilversum. In the historic entrance with beautiful ceiling paintings it seems as if time has stood still. The modern extension at the rear of the building, with the bright rooms spread over three floors, literally gives the museum an extra dimension. It has a cozy café and a shop. The museum is also home to the Silver Camera, the most important journalistic photo competition in the Netherlands. Museum Hilversum is open seven days a week and there is something to do every day! More information about the museum and the activities in the museum can be found on the website
