The Basics

With 90,000 items from 1970 to today, the Stedelijk Museum’s vast and eclectic collection also includes pieces by van Gogh, Picasso, Jackson Pollock, and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, as well as De Stijl artists Piet Mondrian and Gerrit Rietveld. Other movements represented in the galleries include Bauhaus, abstract expressionism, pop art, minimal art, and conceptual art.

You can avoid long lines by prepurchasing your admission ticket online. Entrance typically includes an audio tour, but for something more in-depth, book a private tour of the museum led by an art historian. Many city passes include museum admission, and some tours combine a canal cruise with a museum visit.

The Building

The Stedelijk Museum’s striking new 21st-century wing, designed by Benthem Crouwel Architects, is as bold as the artwork inside. The modernist facade, a shimmering white design aptly nicknamed 'the bathtub,' serves as a provocative declaration of the museum's artistic sensibilities and has proved to be as inspiring as polarizing.
