After an eight-month renovation, the Biesbosch Museum in Werkendam, Netherlands reopened to the public this summer. Since the opening the Biesboschmuseum has already welcomed 30,000 visitors in three months. Before the transformation there were 30,000 per year! Next winter the water playground and freshwater tidal park will be realized on the museum island.
The museum has been completely transformed and extended with a new wing that opens to its beautiful surroundings and 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. Building, interior, water model and freshwater tidal park were designed by Studio Marco Vermeulen, and the exhibition was designed by Studio Joyce Langezaal. (Both are based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands)
