Open today from 11:00


Stedelijk Museum Breda is an attractive and inviting city museum that is open to ideas, dialogue and cooperation. We bring the city’s history to life and devise original exhibitions on history and visual culture. We challenge young and old to think by asking questions and looking for answers. 


We work together with many partners in the city, ranging from community associations to schools and festivals, and everything in between. Moreover, we are building a network with international museums, artists and exhibition makers . We strengthen Breda’s cultural profile to ensure that, in the future, the city continues to bring people together from all over the world.

Heritage and visual culture

Stedelijk Museum Breda is the museum for the city’s heritage and history and for contemporary visual culture. It was created by a merger of the Museum of the Image (MOTI) and Breda’s Museum. By bringing heritage and visual culture together, we create a unique connection between our core functions: a treasure house, a place to learn, experience and meet, a platform and an attraction


Stedelijk Museum Breda has a varied collection with sub-collections on themes like religion and industry, an extensive visual arts collection and collections of graphic design and digital visual culture.


NEXT is Stedelijk Museum Breda’s project room. In NEXT, the museum organises projects and activities in the context of the I.S.M. Breda cooperation programme. It also offers exhibitions, workshops, lectures and educational programmes for schools, groups and visitors.

Volunteer work and internships

Stedelijk Museum Breda has a staff of 28. To support the staff, we welcome volunteers who feel involved with the museum and would like to contribute. In addition, each year, the museum offers places for two to four interns, who receive professional coaching in achieving their learning objectives.
