Het Valkhof is a rather small museum which, when we visited, was also half-empty. On the plus side, we were allowed in for free because of that. Their Roman artefacts are fascinating though and well worth a visit.
Museum het Valkhof is situated on the east side of the town next to Hunnerpark. On our visit, there was free admission as I believe the recent exhibition about gladiators had just closed. There are many Roman artefacts in the museum due to Nijmegen's history as the garrison town of Novio Magus. However I most enjoyed the local art of... 更多
Today I went to the museum, my main reason to visit Nijmengen. The had two temporary exhibitions which were set up very well. I particularly liked the one about gladiators. This one was very well exhibited, good explanations, it had some nice pieces on display such as the gladiator helmets, also a lot of projections and more to show all... 更多
At the Valkhof the exhibition was dealing with gladiators. My son had a wonderful time there. Practicing like a real gladiotor made the museum very interactive. He still speaks of the Roman era as if it was yesterday . Thanks Valkhof for entertaining us.
With a couple of hours to spare, I decided to go to see this exhibition. At 16 Euros it's seems quite expensive, but wait till you see what's inside! In a spectacular array of artifacts and interactive technology, you are transported back 2,000 years to Rome. The sheer scale of this wonderful exhibition with its enormous collection of objects and... 更多

I was very impressed with the Roman collection and the old paintings. There was also an abstract painting exhibit. The building is modern and very well... 更多
The museum is a challenge for an English reader. It was hard to get much information from the displays which are mostly in Dutch. Some of the newer displays have some English, but not many in the Roman section. The reception desk does provide an English pamphlet for some of the key museum pieces. I just wanted to learn more... 更多
Filled with an extraordinary array of artefacts from - what is claimed - to be the oldest settlement in Holland going back to Roman times. Displays are designed to appeal not only to adults, but an active programme for school children too. I was particularly taken by the little section on the history of Jews in the city with a... 更多
This museum has a large number of items. There are many items from the Roman Era. These were found in the local area, as Nijmegen was under Roman rule at one time. There is also a good size exhibit of modern art. There is a English Language handout, but the individual items are not labeled in English.
