Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam isn’t as new as it looks! Founded in 1872 by a group of locals that wanted to create a haven for modern art in Amsterdam. That collection used to be in the Rijksmuseum before moving to its own current setting in 1895. Famed for its collection of Van Gogh works until they got their own museum.After WWII, it continued its work collecting contemporary artworks and that continues to this day. A  recent major refit has cemented its position as one of the premier art centres in the world and has a huge collection. You can use your Museumkaart to get into the Stedelijk Museum for no charge.
