The temporary exibition 'Modebeeld' in which art students designed clothes inspired by the sculptures from the permament collection of Het Depot was great to see! It inspired me to look to the stories behind the original sculptures and the clothing designed.

A friend gave us the tip to visit this museum. The exhibition that was going on was very interesting. We didn't had a chance to see the sculpture garden, will do next time.

Well worth a visit, with lots of interesting sculptures. Entrance is free (you can get a booklet with info about the sculptures for a small donation).

This is four floors of sculptures devoted to the human being and parts of the human body. Sculptures in stone, textile , glass and metal you will encounter. Just wander about in this fascinating museum and do not forgot its outstanding garden.
