Museum
Museum Singer Laren shows changing exhibitions. The Singer collection includes works from the period 1880-1950 by artists such as Anton Mauve, Jan Sluijters, Kees van Dongen, Leo Gestel and Bart van der Leck. In addition to paintings and works on paper, the collection contains a number of beautiful sculptures, including seven works by Auguste Rodin. This means that Museum Singer Laren has the largest collection by this sculptor in the Netherlands, culminating in the world-famous 'The Thinker'.
