Background Info Stedelijk Museum

Uncover the rich history of the Stedelijk Museum: Amsterdam’s Municipal Museum since its inauguration on September 14, 1895. This collaborative effort between the municipal government and private individuals resulted in a Dutch Neo-Renaissance architectural gem, crafted by Adriaan Willem Weissman. Initiated in 1850 as part of a modernization project, the design was significantly influenced by Sophia Adriana de Bruyn in 1890. The museum, a testament to her passion, was built to house de Bruyn’s art collection, donated to the city alongside substantial funds through the VVHK (Society for the formation of a public collection of contemporary art), established in 1874.

Experience the Stedelijk Museum, a unique haven for contemporary art and design in Amsterdam. Home to the Dutch National Museum of Modern Art, it proudly hosts one of the world’s most extensive modern art collections. Despite a substantial drop in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with 268,000 visits (compared to 670,000 in 2019), the tide has turned, and visitor numbers soared last year.
