6 feet Museumprotocol

The Stedelijk museum Amsterdam has opened his doors again. Trough the safety and hygiene protocol, and that of the National Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM), your visit to the museum is as safe and enjoyable as possible. Below you can find the 6 feet protocol of the museum:

• We are allowed to have a maximum of 500 visitors at the museum at the same time. To offer our visitors a comfortable amount of space, we admit 40 people every 15 minutes. That is why currently it is mandatory to reserve a time slot on a specific date by buying an online ticket through the museum website. This also applies to people with a Museumkaart. Please bring your Museum Card or Membership when you visit the museum. At the moment, you cannot buy a ticket in the museum. We can only allow visitors with a valid entrance ticket into the museum.
• Come alone or with your household. A household is defined as: a married couple who are not separated, a registered partner or other life partner and parents, grandparents, and children if they are registered with the municipality as living at the same address. To comply with the 1.5-meter social distancing rule, we are not offering group packages or tours at the moment.
• To minimize unnecessary contact during your visit, you can scan your own ticket, and use an unsupervised cloakroom, (space is limited so please bring few belongings). We have also removed headphones and other equipment from the exhibitions. All purchases in the museum shop must be paid for using your credit or debit card or mobile phone.
• We have taken a number of hygiene measures to protect visitors and staff. Please use the hand sanitizer provided in central areas. We are also following a more intensive cleaning protocol.
• The museum has a lot of space. Clear routes have been marked out to make sure you can stay at the required distance from other visitors and museum staff.
• A limited number of visitors can be admitted per gallery. This is clearly mentioned, and our staff are on hand to make sure that the visitors can maintain the required safety distance in the galleries.
• To make sure everyone can move freely and observe social distancing, taking photos or making video recordings is not permitted at the moment.

Modern art in Amsterdam

A visit to the Stedelijk Museum takes the visitor on a journey through the last 150 years of art, presenting the best of modern art in Amsterdam. Iconic works by Karel Appel, Cézanne, Chagall, Marlene Dumas, Kandinsky, Edward Kienholz, De Kooning, Koons, Malevich, Matisse, Mondrian, Picasso, Pollock, Gerrit Rietveld, Warhol and many others are on show. The Stedelijk Museum’s design collection also traces the history of design from the turn of the last century to the present, showcasing furniture, ceramics, posters, jewellery and other objects.

Major movements of art, design and architecture

The Stedelijk Museum's collection contains ca. 90,000 artworks and objects, dating from 1870 to the present. It includes paintings and sculpture, photography, film and video, installations, works on paper, artist’s books, applied arts and industrial and graphic design. With major movements, such as Bauhaus, the Amsterdam School, De Stijl, CoBrA, abstract expressionism, pop art, minimal art and conceptual art all represented, the Stedelijk Museum offers a great overview of modern and contemporary art, design and architecture.

Innovative art space

In addition to providing more spacious halls for exhibitions, the refurbishment and new wing have also changed the public face of the museum – which now looks out onto Museumplein rather than away from it. The impressive new foyer and restaurant are extremely inviting to both locals and travellers alike, the large museum shop is well-stocked with posters, art books, postcards and plenty of design trinkets, and thanks an avid team of art loving volunteers, the Stedelijk’s programming is regularly enriched by special guided tours, lectures and other live performances.

The new wing

The Stedelijk reopened in September 2012 following extensive renovations that saw the interior of the museum brought right up to date and the addition of an eye-catching, futuristic new wing, designed by Benthem Crouwel Architects and known among Amsterdammers as ‘the bathtub’ because of its distinctive shape and its smooth white surface.
