about us

About us

The Limburgs Museum is the leading museum for culture and history in Limburg.
The museum collects, displays, and shares stories of Limburg. We offer surprising perspectives on Limburg’s past, present, and future, as well as the wider world around us.

Limburg is a unique province. It was here that the nation’s first inhabitants settled, followed later by the first farmers. It was here that the Romans first entered our country and where the first Christians lived and the first cities were founded.

In addition to this rich history, the museum also showcases Limburg as it is today. An internationally oriented province at the heart of European developments.

The Limburgs Museum is at the heart of society and aims to facilitate a diverse and inclusive dialogue. We will be communicating Limburg’s stories in three ways: at the museum itself, at selected locations throughout the province, and online.

Vision

The Limburgs Museum is at the heart of our society. Our dialogue is inclusive and transparent, with many voices. We conduct research and give presentations on insights into the world we live in, in partnership with various groups and organizations. This makes us an important venue for today’s and future generations and allows us to take on the role of pioneer in Limburg’s cultural sector.

Special location

The museum stands on a spot where the city walls and fortifications of the City of Venlo were located over centuries. After the fortifications were demolished in 1870, the site was used as a marshalling yard for private railway companies.

The oldest remaining filling station can also be found on the south side of the museum. This Esso filling station was built in 1933.

The history of the site was an important source of inspiration for the architect Jeanne Dekkers in the creation of her design for the museum.
