Stedelijk Museum Tours

Stedelijk Museum
Home to one of the Netherlands' most celebrated collections of modern and contemporary art, the Stedelijk Museum contains works ranging from iconic Andy Warhol prints and impressionist paintings by Matisse and Cezanne to Rodin sculptures. One entire gallery is devoted to Dutch Art Nouveau (De Stijl).

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.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Stedelijk Museum is a must-visit for art and culture lovers.
  • The striking contemporary building itself is a draw for architecture enthusiasts.
  • The museum is accessible to wheelchair users and also offers a limited number of wheelchairs and walkers for use.
  • There is an entrance fee, but children under 18 years enter free.

How to Get There
From Amsterdam Centraal, take tram 2 (direction Nieuw Sloten) or 12 (direction Amstelstation) to the Van Baerlestraat stop. From Amsterdam Amstel train station, take tram 12 (direction Amsterdam Centraal) to the Museumplein stop. The museum is within a 5-minute walk of both the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum.

When to Get There
The Stedelijk Museum is open every day from 10am to 6pm, and on Fridays it stays open until 10pm. The museum is a popular attraction, so try to arrive early to avoid the biggest crowds. Weekends tend to be the busiest days of the week.

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.
