After an eight-month renovation, the Biesbosch Museum reopened to the public this summer. The museum has been completely transformed and extended with a new wing that opens to its beautiful surroundings.
The new wing houses a restaurant and temporary exhibition space for contemporary art. The permanent exhibition that explains the historical development of the region has also been totally revamped. A large water model of the Biesbosch and a freshwater tidal park are also planned on the Museum Island.
Building, interior, water model and freshwater tidal park were designed by Studio Marco Vermeulen. The exhibition was designed by Studio Joyce Langezaal.
The Biesbosch Museum is no less than three times awarded at the Architizer Awards 2016. In both the category Museum as the category Architecture and Landscape the design won the Jury Prize. In this last category it also won the Public Award.
Nominated for the Dutch Design Awards 2016
