The Silver Opening is the first opening of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, which is still under construction. During the opening, members of the public will have an opportunity to appreciate the empty building’s architecture without the collection installed.
After the Silver Opening, the doors will close again for around a year. During that time, the collection of more than 151,000 artworks of art will be installed, the atrium, the storage facilities, the studio spaces and the restaurant will be fitted out and the entire building will be provided with wayfinding signage. The Depot will open officially with the Golden Opening in the autumn of 2021.
