Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s collection of more than 80,000 works on paper is one of the most important in the world. The prints and drawings are carefully stored in boxes in the new print room’s store. You can see the store through a 25-metre-long glass wall. A selection of works from the collection is exhibited in display cases in the print room.

500 prints and 500 drawings have been digitised and can be viewed on a screen. You can request your favourite work from the store. You will then see one of our staff fetch the print or drawing from the store and bring it to a special display table where you can view the actual work.
