Visit the world’s first publicly accessible art storage facility Depot Boijmans van Beuningen with us! In a tour including a small workshop you’ll learn more about what’s going on behind the scenes and get to see some of the top art works from the museum.

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 until closing time to take a walk around by yourself and take lots and lots of pictures of this iconic building.
