I visited the Kroller-Muller Museum on my last visit to Europe and really wanted Pam to see it on this visit. The sculpture garden and museum are located in DE HOGE VELUWE National Park. It is the largest national park in the Netherlands.

The gardens and hedge rows serve to seperate and isolate the sculpture individually or in groups. We felt like we were the only ones in the garden most of the time. The weather report called for rain in the afternoon so we headed for the sculpture garden first. The weather was cool but calm in the shelter of the garden. Once we found our route marker we were off. As we wander through the art, in this garden, is jaw dropping. One WOW after another (if you happen to like modern sculpture). It is my personal favorite. We hope you enjoy the many photos we posted, just could not leave any out.

Oh, did I happen to mention the KM Museum also has an indoor gallery? Well, it has a few sculpture you might recognize and it also houses the second largest collection of Van Gogh paintings in the world. Depending which 45 of there 75 they display it might be the best. You be the judge. I usually don't take a lot of photos of paintings but this was an exception.

We left the gallery and gardens just in time. The skies were blackening and we felt drops as we mounted our trusty KIA for the ride home.
