Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, built in 1895, is the largest museum for modern and contemporary art and design in the Netherlands. The historic museum building has been completely renovated for the first time, and expanded with a futuristic new wing, designed by Benthem Crouwel Architects. After the grand reopening on September 23, the museum has more space than ever before to present the world renowned collection and cutting edge exhibitions, among others in the basement gallery: with 1100 m2 the largest exhibition space in Amsterdam.
