Museum's mission

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has an international collection of art from 1400 to the present day, making it unique in the Netherlands. The museum manages and preserves this extraordinary collection. The new Collections Building will allow the public to see the professionalism with which the museum cares for its own collection and those of private collectors. The museum’s displays and special exhibitions are presented with the conviction that art unites the past, present and future. Through its collection, exhibitions and education programme, the museum aims to reach a varied audience: young and old, from all backgrounds, locally, nationally and internationally. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is a place where boundaries of time, space and origins disappear. The museum’s exciting exhibitions, amazing acquisitions and a rich education programme are designed to move, enrich and inspire our visitors.
