Stedelijk Museum | Museum of Modern Art

The Stedelijk Museum is an art museum for modern art. It was founded in 1895 as a city history museum. The building is built in Neo-Renaissance style. Originally, furniture, coins, silverware, jewelery and home furnishings from old Amsterdam houses as well as a collection of weapons, among other things, could be viewed here. Over time, the collections were transferred to other institutions. The Stedelijk Museum also housed the extensive Van Gogh collection until the separate Van -Gogh Museum was built. After 1970 there was a reorientation and the museum became the first address for modern art. Between 2003 and 2012, the museum was also extensively expanded.

The museum is one of the most innovative and interesting modern art museums in the world. Today, visitors can discover famous collections of modern art and design here.

Today, all major trends in modern art are represented in the Stedelijk Museum. These include works by classical modern artists (Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall), collections with German Expressionists, American Pop Art and also current British art.
