Museum Slager is a special museum. As a visitor you get a unique insight into the life and work of a family of painters; the family Slager in 's-Hertogenbosch. With eight painters you can see an interesting development in painting over three generations. And last but not least, a fascinating picture of cultural and social life in 's-Hertogenbosch between 1840 and the end of the 20th century.
The museum consists of four combined buildings. With the tympanums above the windows, the architecture of the building shows features of the Neo-Renaissance. “Choor” in the street name refers to the priest's choir of the nearby St. John's Cathedral.
What starts with the legacy of the works of art within the family, grows in more than forty years into a beautiful versatile collection. From its own depot with a diversity of works, a dynamic and varied exhibition is always possible. Museum Slager therefore always remains interesting to visit. Especially because three times a year there are special temporary exhibitions in the field of realistic art. “”
