Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is a unique and multifaceted museum, established in the heart of Rotterdam almost 170 years ago. A visit to the museum is a journey through the history of art.
The museum takes its name from two important collectors, Frans Boijmans and Daniël George van Beuningen, who enriched the collection with many masterpieces.
The collection features Dutch and international masterpieces from the early Middle Ages to the present day, from Bosch and Rembrandt to Van Gogh and Dalí. The museum charts the development of Impressionism and Modernism with works by Monet, Mondrian and Magritte and has an extensive collection of Pop art with works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and many others. The museum also has an extensive collection of Dutch design, with examples by Gerrit Rietveld, Gispen, Hella Jongerius, Bertjan Pot and Studio Wieki Somers, and works by eminent foreign designers such as Marcel Breuer, Charles and Ray Eames, Ettore Sottsass and Konstantin Grcic.
