Through the Heart of Europe -- Part 10, The Kroller-Muller Museum

After Bonn the boat headed down the Rhine toward Dusseldorf while several of us boarded a bus for a side-trip to see the magnificent collection of 19th and 20th Century art at the Kroller-Muller Museum in the Netherlands.

Along the way we passed this estate where Audrey Hepburn spent her final years.

The museum is surrounded by a sculpture garden set in a lovely deciduous forest. Here's a piece near the entrance.

And inside the entrance, more sculpture.

"Desire, deserve, delight".

But there are also things on the wall like this.

The snack bar where we rested for a bit.

Back outside, wandering through the sculpture forest.


Then back on the bus for a return to our boat.
