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.

Half the ground floor of the historic building is devoted to industrial and graphic design and applied arts, with work by Gerrit Rietveld, Willem Sandberg and Ettore Sottsass among others. The other half and all of the second floor is dedicated to the visual arts from around 1870 to the present, with iconic works by Karel Appel, G.H. Breitner, Marc Chagall, Rineke Dijkstra, Marlene Dumas, Edward Kienholz, Willem de Kooning, Kazimir Malevich, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondriaan and Andy Warhol among many others on display.
