Utrecht is a cultural magnet. It has been for over 2000 years. Artists, artisans, religious figures, politicians, philosophers and scientists. They found their place here, left something behind, shaping Utrecht as they went. The how and the what varies from one to the next. The stories behind the objects are what bring Utrecht to life. All these objects are represented in the collections city history, old painting, modern art, applied art and fashion design & costumes. Classic items taken from these collections comprise ‘This is Centraal Museum!’. Think of Jan van Scorel, Hendrick ter Brugghen, the dollhouse, the model of the Dom Cathedral, Theo van Doesburg, but also Pyke Koch, Gerrit Rietveld, Dick Bruna, historical costumes and contemporary fashion.
