Natural Museum Belvédère

Museum Belvédère is located on the edge of the historic and wooded Oranjewoud landscape park. The sleek museum building was designed by Eerde Schippers of INBO architects. The elongated building, which was awarded the BNA architecture prize in 2006, includes two large exhibition spaces and a centrally located museum café that offers a view of Landgoed Oranjewoud, the former country residence of the Oranje-Nassau family.

Where land, light and air find space

The special location of Museum Belvédère explains why it mainly focuses on painting that responds to natural conditions such as light, land, air and space. These artistic experiences of nature can be both figurative and abstract in character.

Frisian artists and their kindred spirits

Museum Belvédère wants to be a home base for Frisian and Northern Dutch artists and aims to show their work in relation to the work of kindred spirits from home and abroad.
