The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is the place where everyone can discover and experience modern and contemporary visual art and design.

VISION

The aim of the Stedelijk is to enrich people's lives with art. Our collection, exhibitions, publications, research and educational programs offer unique and compelling insights into today’s world and highlight topics that impact our societies and individual lives. 

Our interactions between audiences and art are driven by dialogues with artists. We explore complex topics of yesterday, today and tomorrow – as defined by artists and signaled by ourselves – in an adventurous program. This vision is guided by a fresh, energetic approach to displaying, caring for and renewing our world-famous collection. 

Our museum builds memories for the future.
