The Dordrecht Museum is housed in the former insane asylum. The museum, founded in 1842, is one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands. It owns a diverse collection of old, modern and contemporary art. It covers more than four hundred years of Dutch painting: works from the 16th century to contemporary art. The museum owns work by Ary Scheffer, one of the greatest painters of Dordrecht. But it also owns works of other Dordrecht painters, including Ferdinand Bol and Aelbert Cuyp. In addition, works by Armando, Karel Appel, Pyke Koch and Jan Toorop are on display.
