Bequests are of great value to the museum. They give us the opportunity to acquire a unique artwork, to restore a damaged work, to develop a programme for children or to carry out scholarly research.

Since the establishment of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in 1849, the museum has been able to honour many individuals by collecting, restoring, programming and researching in their name.

If you decide to include Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in your will, you can do this in one of three ways: Testamentary disposition:

  • the museum is appointed an heir and receives a portion of your estate.
  • Bequest: you bequeath an object or sum of money to the museum.
  • Giving during your lifetime, with usufruct: you give (part of) your estate to the museum, in return for an annual payout (usufruct).
