The main museum in Utrecht is the Centraal Museum. It dates to around 1838 and the building which houses the collections is just as interesting as the collections themselves :)
As part of the celebrations for the 60th anniversary of Miffy there are several joined areas in the museum dedicated to the character.
Among the giant books and birthday presents there are examples of some of Miffy’s earliest books and drawings by Dick Bruna……Miffy is a very celebrated character in Utrecht.
The rest of the museum houses a mix of modern and historic art, furniture and sculpture, as well as various other artefacts from around the local areas.
One of the most impressive, and unusual, items is the 1,000 year old “Utrecht Ship” which is on display in one of the cellars in the building.
