Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen displays the museum’s entire art collection and offers visitors a behind-the-scenes view of how a museum works. In the Depot, fourteen compartments are fitted with shelves, racks and cabinets for all different kinds of artworks. There are compartments for paintings, metal objects, organic and non-organic materials, and black-and-white and colour photography. The depot compartments have climate control; the temperature and humidity are kept stable. From the circulation route, the stairs and the lift you can see the artworks from a variety of angles. Accompanied by a guide, we will also get a behind the scenes look on what the people are working on.

The tour will be English spoken and only accessible for EUR-students. After the tour there is plenty of time to take a walk around by yourself and take lots and lots of pictures of this iconic building.
