In Museum Nagele it’s the architecture that counts. That is not so surprising, given that it is situated in the middle of the only Dutch flat-roof village. Nagele was designed in the 1950s by the architects of De Acht en Opbouw, like Cornelis van Eesteren, Aldo van Eyck, Gerrit Rietveld and landscape architect Mien Ruys. In the museum there is a permanent exhibition about the origin of this creation. There are also temporary exhibitions that focus on the architecture and art.More about Museum Nagele
