About Singer Laren

Singer Laren is a place where arts come together. It consists of a museum, villa, sculpture garden and a theatre. In the museum you can enjoy changing exhibitions from the period 1880-1950, while the freely accessible sculpture garden is decorated with sculptures by contemporary Dutch artists.

The Villa De Wilde Zwanen was built at the beginning of the last century by the American couple Anna and William Singer. They received many artists here, resulting in a beautiful art collection. The museum and theater were added to the villa in 1956.

'In the spirit of the founder, Singer Laren is the place where the arts come together, where we celebrate the arts.' According to museum director Jan Rudolph de Lorm. The art can be admired not only in the museum and in the sculpture garden, but also during lectures, exhibitions and workshops.
