The Rijksmuseum Twenthe was founded through the initiative of the Twente textile baron Jan Bernard van Heek, who wanted to have his painting collection housed in a new state museum in Enschede. It is thanks to the persistence of his family after his death that the museum was actually built. It was opened in 1930.
The museum is known as "the museum of the imagination". In 36 rooms items from the present as well as from the past are displayed. There are no permanent exhibitions. Last Saturday was my first visit and I found it surprising and interesting. I will definitely go back!
