During the Divided Divided exhibition visitors can spend a night at the museum. This exclusive room is already booked up for the entire period.

Revolving Hotel Room
Guests staying in the sculpture Revolving Hotel Room will be able to enjoy a night-time visit to the whole museum accompanied by a private butler and will be able to relax in this extraordinary work of art. As you would expect, luxury facilities are included, such as room service, a well-stocked minibar, bathroom and toilet to ensure your comfortable stay in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. From 11 a.m. each day the hotel room once again becomes part of Carsten Höller’s Divided Divided exhibition and the hotel guests will find themselves surrounded by museum visitors.

The Revolving Hotel Room consists of three revolving discs that carry a fully furnished hotel room. A wardrobe, a desk and chairs and a double bed share the discs. A fourth disc supports the other three, which revolve very slowly. The Guggenheim Museum in New York exhibited the hotel room last year with great success.

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and Art Rotterdam present an online auction for the last night available. Place your bid at the Art Rotterdam website. From 4 February you can place your bid.
