Eindhoven’s cultural tryst is best explained on a visit to the Van Abbe Museum. Founded by Henri van Abe, the museum exhibits contemporary art. The earliest collections included works of Jan Sluijters, Carel Willink and Isaac Israels. Recently, the works of Picasso, Mondrian and El Lissitzky were also displayed at the museum. Many of the works here were made in east and central Europe. Not just the collection, the building which houses the museum is also treated like a work of art. Since the original building fell short of display area, a new building was constructed at the start of the century. There is a café inside the museum where you can spend some time after taking a look at the artworks. Public events are held at the auditorium inside the museum’s premises.
