I was surprised at both the depth and breadth of the collection. Despite spending most of the day there, there was easily another day or two that could be spent roaming the collection. There's a large regionally focused collection, and then there are interesting temporary...More

When you visit Assen, you should definitely visit this museum. It´s very interesting. A few years ago the Terracotta Army was in the museum, this was really interesting. Right now you can watch Russian Realism, so I think I need to visit again :)
