Nederlands Tegelmuseum

In het Nederlands Tegelmuseum (Dutch Tile Museum) five centuries of art, culture and history come together on a seemingly simple product: the tile. The Netherlands has an unique position in the history of tiles, tile pictures and ceramics. The Dutch Tile Museum displays the largest and most versatile collection of Dutch wall tiles and tile pictures in the world, from the late Middle Ages to contemporary ceramics.

From interior decoration to works of art

In the museum you will find impressive tile panels that have decorated palaces, churches, schools, shops and houses for centuries. From Dutch Renaissance to Baroque, from tiles in Art Nouveau and Art Deco style to works of art by Maurits Escher and Karel Appel, among others.

A Dutch classic

Not so long ago, handmade tiles were an everyday phenomenon in Dutch houses and buildings. Now that this image is increasingly disappearing, the Tile Museum ensures that this Dutch classic is not lost. The representations on tiles tell a lot about daily life and the changes in fashion then and now.

Production process of the tile

Using photos, machines, tools and raw materials, you will discover how tiles were produced.

Helene Kröller-Müller room

The art collection that Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939) brought together for her museum is known all over the world. The fact that Helene also built up a collection of Delft pottery, containing a series of old Dutch wall tiles, is much less known. This collection was created before she started concentrating on the visual arts. Part of her tile collection can be seen in the Helene Kröller-Müller room in the Tile Museum. This is possible thanks to a long-term loan from the Kröller-Müller Museum.

The mission of MuseumTV is to introduce art and culture to the biggest audience possible. We do this on our joint video on demand platform for Dutch museums. Through our partners we bring the platform to the attention of the Dutch public actively.
