Museum Mayer van den Bergh

In the late 1800's the passionate collector Fritz Mayer van den Bergh amassed an amazing art collection. He purchased paintings by Peter Brueghel for a pittance, managed to beat major museums purchasing stunning medieval sculptures. Mayer van den Bergh had an eye for the best quality in almost every genre. After his death his mother finally managed to make her son’s dream come true: she built a museum, which only showcased his collection. And today Museum Mayer van den Bergh hasn’t changed: it is still a museum of one man... and of his mother. Highly recommended in the Great smaller museums of Europe!
