Holiday Travel Guide

Discover the boldest and most striking examples of the art movements that have made history in this prestigious museum on Amsterdam’s famous Museumplein.

For a vivid history of modern art, walk through Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Paintings, sculpture, photography, video art, installations, graphics, textiles and furniture from the last 150 years illustrate how visual arts have both reflected and shaped the modern world.

Stedelijk Museum’s collection encompasses around 90,000 pieces. Learn about important movements in Dutch art and design such as De Stijl, and see pieces from the most interesting artists working in The Netherlands today. Pop Art, Bauhaus, the Amsterdam School and Abstract Expressionism, particularly the work of one of its important founders, Willem de Kooning, are all celebrated here.

One of the famous favorites is the dual electric blue panels of Cathedra by Barnett Newman. Experience how artistic expression has evolved over decades through the museum’s vast spectrum of works and media.

The classic building, reminiscent of Renaissance architecture, first opened its doors in 1895, but has since been renovated completely. The latest addition is the smooth modern annex known as “the bathtub,” as it resembles a free-standing, white tub with a cover over it.

Bring your kids to the Family Lab where they can experiment with making art in this inspiring environment. Or, take a break in the on-site restaurant. Choose from a large selection of specialty books in the gift shop or for a more in-depth experience, visit the museum’s library.

Before you visit the museum, pick up a Museumplein ticket from one of the numerous outlets around the city. The ticket will allow access to the three major museums, plus the chance to see live concerts at the Royal Concertgebouw nearby. Stedelijk Museum’s more famous neighbors are the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum, so you can make the most of your combined ticket in just the one day. With this ticket, or with a single Stedelijk Museum ticket bought online, you can even be fast-tracked to avoid the usual long lines.

Stedelijk Museum is open daily, with longer opening hours on Thursdays. There is easy access with trams and an underground parking lot under Museumplein, or you can ride your bike there, in true Amsterdam style, from nearby Leidseplein or Vondelpark.
