From the historical house in the center of Maastricht, Marres explores contemporary art in the widest possible sense. The museum was founded in 1998 and takes its name from the brewers’ family Marres that lived in the house in the twentieth century.

Marres develops exhibitions, organizes workshops, issues unique publications, creates walks in the city and region and offers a wide range of education and participation activities. Marres’ program focuses on experience and emphasizes on the working of the senses and the language of the body. In this, Marres collaborates with makers from various disciplines: visual artists, musicians, theater makers, dancers, scientists, but also perfumers and cooks.

With an internationally oriented program for both artists and the public, Marres bridges the worlds of contemporary art and everyday experience in its intimate house. In the same building next to the museum, the Mediterranean restaurant Marres Kitchen is situated and behind the house you find a lush public city garden.
