Exhibitions are shown in the Utrecht city centre location near the Dom church and tower: Hamburgerstraat 28. Here you will find several interesting exhibitions about the history of Utrecht. Every six months there is a new exhibition. Entrance to our exhibitions is free.

Now: Utrecht on film - Wonderful and nostalgic films of Utrecht, 1920-1980.

Moving images are an entirely natural part of modern life. But decades ago, even as early as the beginning of the twentieth century, both amateur and professional film makers roamed the city to capture the city and its surroundings on camera. 

This exhibition showcases nine compilations created from our collection of moving images, comprising 550 films in all. What did 20th-century Utrecht look like? What forms of transportation did people use? What did locals do in their leisure time? Which spots are still recognisable today? See for yourself in these galleries, featuring highlights of our film collection. You can also view another 16 short films in our basement cinema.
