Renovation and renewal
In 2019 the museum will embark on the essential renovation programme. The largescale refurbishment and modernisation is expected to take seven years and will begin in the summer of 2019, immediately after the monumental building in Museumpark closes. Asbestos removal is expected to take a year. Meanwhile, we are starting the process of selecting the architects and the Schedule of Requirements that will form the basis of the provisional design is being drawn up. While the rebuilding works are going on, the collection will continue to be seen in institutions in the Netherlands and around the world, and from 2021 in its full glory in Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, the world’s first publicly accessible art storage facility.
