Gemeentemuseum

Masterpieces by Picasso and Monet, the world’s largest Mondriaan collection and typical Dutch ceramics are housed in this remarkable art deco municipal art museum.

Explore the Gemeentemuseum’s extensive collection of modern art, which ranges from Monet’s early experiments with form to the abstract masterpieces of the Dutch master Pieter Mondriaan (internationally also known as Piet Mondrian). Other exhibits of note are the study of changing tastes in European interior design over the centuries and a Delft Pottery collection. The museum’s program of regularly rotating temporary exhibits keeps things interesting for returning visitors.

The Gemeentemuseum (Municipal Museum) opened its doors in 1935. The art deco building’s rooms look like neatly stacked cubes. The design was the final work of one of the founders of Modernist architecture in the Netherlands, Hendrik Berlage. Look out for details such as the bronze window frames and the colorful tiles. Inside, the amount of light that pours in through the large windows creates the perfect set for viewing the museum’s collections. 

Wander through rooms decorated with works by modern pioneers such as Picasso and Louise Bourgeois. Make your way to the exhibit dedicated to Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan. It is the largest collection of this Dutch artist’s work in the world. Trace his development from a experimenting landscape painter to one of the world’s foremost modern artists. The collection culminates with his final work: Victory Boogie Woogie. You’ll instantly recognize the dancing lines and colors of this abstract showpiece.

Make your way to the Delftware Wonderware exhibit to see one of the world’s best collections of typically Dutch ceramics. Admire the delicate blue-and-white designs of tulip vases and over 200 pieces of other pottery on show. 

In the print room, check out some of the 50,000 drawings, posters and prints displayed. Other rooms explore changing styles in interior design and fashion, making the museum even more diverse.

Located close to Scheveningen Beach, north of the city center, the Gemeentemuseum is served by buses and trams. There is free on-street parking in front of the museum. Gemeentemuseum is closed on Mondays, Christmas Day and New Years. There is an admission fee, but children enter for free.
