Elizabeth II is a living legend; her life spans an entire epoch. Indeed, during her reign, she has seen the terms of office of all German Federal Chancellors to date, as well as those of British Prime Ministers from Winston Churchill through to Theresa May. Queen Elizabeth II is, moreover, the most portrayed person of the 20th and 21st centuries. With its many depictions of the Queen, this exhibition brings to life the 90 years of her reign.

Banksy's projects "Dismaland" and "Walled Off Hotel" achieved the greatest worldwide response of all art projects in 2015 and 2017.

National Geograpic Greatest Landscapes

With the National Geographic exhibition "Greatest Landscapes" we want to highlight the Museon's status as the Netherlands' most important geography museum. The exhibition shows breathtaking views and beautiful panoramas of the most special places on earth. From the heat of the desert to the barren polar regions, from sharp cliffs to rolling hills. All the photos in recent years have been taken by the best photographers from National Geographic. With this exhibition, we not only want to depict serene scenery, but also the influence of mankind on the landscape - for good and for bad.

Museon Knights & Castles

The Middle Ages are often referred to as a dark and gloomy era. Unfairly so. Therefore Museon believes it is time to take a new, refreshing look at this period. With this exhibition, Museon seeks to put the Middle Ages in a new perspective. Seven characters looking quite familiar, each with a contemporary look, invite you to experience what life looked like a 1000 years ago.
